about the project:
The Princess Grace Foundation awarded Zoe Scofield the Choreography Mentorship Co-comission for her new piece called always now. She's so fortunate to partner with Bebe Miller as her mentor and Jacob’s Pillow through a technical residency and presentation. She is working with incredible collaborators: dancers, Troy Ogilvie, Gilbert Small, Kèvin Quinaou, Shane Donohue, David Rue and Kim Lusk and designers Juniper Shuey, Thomas Dunn and Julian Martlew.
Part 1 of always now will be presented at Jacob's Pillow May 5- 6, 2018.
The new work is a diptych and part one is a 30-40 minute piece with the audience watching from the floor. The audience lay on the floor head to shin, experiencing the dancers and choreography from the ground up. By placing the audience at a perpendicular physical orientation to the dancers, she is utilizing a simple shift in the structure of traditional performance to alter the audience-dancer relationship. They are curious how this orientation change can allow them to experience being a dancer and an audience member again, as if for the first time. With this simple repositioning, what vulnerabilities come into play for all of us?
