What is the NEXT step? The Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat reveals the mechanism behind a choreography in his first collaboration with the dancers of ICK. Making a dance performance requires an infinite number of choices and for NEXT he is looking for the only right choice. Not with a specific plan or idea, but from intuition and the intelligence of the body. Dance as an algorithm.
“The work Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have developed around the idea of the intuitive body is one I feel very close to. The notion of the dancing body as a form of intuitive intelligence is something which is part of my ongoing research, and the occasion to work with the dancers of ICK on further elaborating these ideas, is very exiting” – Emanuel Gat
