Choreographed By Marika Meoli and Jessica Eirado Enes In Venice Biennale 2016.
Site-specific dance refuses the confines of a concert stage. From sidewalks to airports, bridges to buildings, choreographers are reshaping our conventional notions of performance. When a dance piece is conceived in relation to a particular place (and is therefore “site-specific”) the location becomes as much a part of the performance as the dancer’s body. Brought out into the world, dance expands its imaginative repertoire, engages with new audiences, and helps reinvigorate a sense of communal space.
