Eleanor Bauer: A lot of moving parts
Eleanor Bauer is a performer and choreographer working at the intersections of dance, writing, and music. Her work underlines the synthesis of physical, conceptual, emotional, affective, formal, and aesthetic understandings. Currently a PhD candidate in Choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts, Bauer marks her NYC return with A lot of moving parts – her first solo work since the acclaimed (BIG GIRLS DO BIG THINGS), which was last performed in New York as part of Performa in 2011.
Years of dance practices, scores, and writings gather in what Bauer calls “a long-exposure portrait of how dance thinks through her and how she thinks through dance.” Bauer works with the frictions, collisions, translations, love affairs and gaps between dance and language in her choreographic search for “the simplest containers in which the complexity of dance can thrive.”
