Jessica in Season 4 workshops developing a dervish style knife skirt dance for SURPLUS, the performance piece taking place on Saturday 20 October at 20h30 in the William Kentridge studio.
In The Surplus Circus many of Season 4’s themes and lines of thought will converge through a series of devised and improvised, free-flowing performances. Thematic inquiries into the notions of human vs machine, and alternate views of history will be presented through dances with paper, and choruses of megaphones. Dervish dances involving long, precarious knives will take over the floor, before giving way to the keys of a piano, sounding out across various mediums, fighting to be heard amidst the din of information, the collapsed conference.
