Liza Baliasnaja (LT): Commensurate to be with
Commensurate to be with is a choreographic exercise with a desire to understand the affect of synchronized action. Framed as an exercise, the work is focused on practice of synchronicity as a shared goal. Through out the exercise of Commensurate to be with, four performers explore the variations of being with each other through a spectrum of spacial and temporal measures.
I develop the work from an ineterst to collaborate on collective dancing and listening. I am guided by a curiosity to understand what possibilities open up while dancing together rather than alone. What tools can be invented choreographically and performatively in order to achieve a shared sense of perception between the four subjects.
