She was a knife thrower’s assistant… work in progress

Notes

A duet collaboration between two choreographers (one disabled, one non-disabled) working together on dance performances that touch the borders of mainstream assumptions about implicit and explicit images of 'the contemporary dancer' and the different potentials for our bodies to be seen as knowing, skilful and passionate.

Work in progress (2007).

Includes a research document and a short WIP edit.
