Already Unmade

Date: 2017



September 17, 18, and 19, from 11am to 8pm

Ongoing performance

Over the past decade, Andros Zins-Browne has been developing a hybrid body of work at the intersection of installation, performance and conceptual dance. In each of his pieces, the American choreographer pays particular attention to the nature of the images, how they are produced and how they circulate, how they enter into movement, in both literal and symbolic terms, and how they are deciphered by onlookers.

In Already Unmade, a piece based on a process of “unlearning”, Zins-Browne joins up with other dancers in order to collectively examine each of their personal choreographic histories and deconstruct, little by little, their kinesthetic memories as performers. Already Unmade takes a reverse look at the conventional presentation format of a choreographic work: here the departure point for the dancers is that of a “finished object” which they dissect and modify over the course of a day through a subtle game of repetition.

Performed by: Jaime Llopis, Sandy Williams et Andros Zins- Browne.
In coproduction with The Great Indoors (Brussels).
