At Large

Eleanor Bauer

Performance, English spoken, 60min, 2008.

The process and products of At Large investigate the existing and potential capacities of dance in a society of increased and horizontal information accessibility and a contemporary culture of over-productivity. When the world is a stage, At Large opens up the agency and perspective of the dancemaker by working in several media, platforms of visibility, and modes of productivity to chart and expand the various territories of dance today.

At Large is a book, a song, a screensaver, a new dance fad, and a series of videos documenting existing social dance fads and phenomena, screened in the lobbies of the live performance.

Sliding between points of interest, connecting disparate frames of reference, transgressing spheres of relevance, the performers negotiate the persistent tropes of dance as art, entertainment, street culture, pleasure, communication, abstraction, identification, and self-expression. At Large confronts these recombinant histories in order to ask where we stand today, and of course, where to move next.
