Vesna’s Fall | April 5 | {Re}HAPPENING Festival, Black Mountain College

No Collective is presenting Vesna’s Fall made in collaboration with choreographer Lindsey Drury, at the former Black Mountain College site this coming Saturday April 5 (from 6pm), as a part of the {Re}HAPPENING Festival. This is the second instantiation of our work, following the first performance at Judson Church in February, but we have completely reconstructed the piece to fit the 587 acres outdoor space with a big lake in the middle and 500 expected audience roaming around. It will also go on for 2 hours or so. Hope you can come to North Carolina!
Vesna’s Fall
by No Collective and Lindsey Drury
Dancers:  Laura Bartczak, Paige Fredlund, Kaia Gilje, Katelyn Hales, and Molly Schaffner
This work explores new ways to relate movement and sound within and against a highly-charged problematics of history and historization. We acknowledge the importance of the first Happening at BMC, but also question its basic premises: the setting of a singular time (clocked time brackets) and space (the Dining Hall) as the common denominator of the various happenstances. Our work will instead present a distribution of diverse events that relies neither on a singular time nor space, but rather on the inflections of velocities (time-space) accorded to each dancer through her proximity (‘gravity’) to the other dancers who count her move in her stead. Gravity of numbers is only put to an end by the number of gravities.
