A STUDY ON EFFORT
Conceived and choreographed by BOBBI JENE SMITH in collaboration with KEIR GOGWILT
BOBBI JENE SMITH, dancer
KEIR GOGWILT, violinist
A Study on Effort explores connections between sound, body and duration. An hour-long dialogue between dancer BOBBI JENE SMITH and violinist KEIR GOGWILT, the piece transposes different physical and emotional tasks between music and movement. Efforts are supported and transformed in the exchange between gesture and sound, finding pleasure at the boundaries of the two artistic disciplines.
