Reggie Wilson:Solo’s Solo/"Basic II" – a study on how NOT to go so low or too deep (with changes in direction)
Choreographer, performer, and director of Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group Reggie Wilson opens up his choreographic process to Souleymane Badolo, a contemporary dancer and choreographer from Burkina Faso whose work was first seen at Danspace Project as part of Ralph Lemon’s Platform i get lost in 2010.
This work will be performed by Badolo as an experiment in process and a discovery of what can be gained from the process of exploring without an emphasis on the solitary limitation of arriving at a result.
Together Wilson and Badolo search out the base elements of dance, abandoning improvisation, movement-invention, character and emotion by focusing on order, rhythm, patterns, texture, comparison and relationship. They investigate movement, gesture, repetition, and structure, looking to see when, if, and how narrative, theme, or story, arise from form and structure
