Intimately innovative contemporary dance.
“In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen – really seen.” Brene Brown
Rikki Bremner and Trihedral Sector present a double bill of contemporary dance that examines and abstracts the complexities of social interaction and our innate desire for human connection.
How to Con-nect – Rikki Bremner // Through body language and eye contact, our inner desires drive us to connect with those around us, and to truly see each other and ourselves. We live in a world where physical contact is declining and we continue to reach out for these connections.
It’s Getting Awkward – Trihedral Sector // We have all been there. That moment when you’re red-faced, sweating and self-conscious. You aim for their lips but they desperately back away, reaching instead for your hand…
This collaborative creation explores the decision-making process of choosing an appropriate greeting when meeting someone new. Knowing whether to give a handshake, a hug or a kiss whilst maintaining your composure is surprisingly difficult, even if we provide a convincing display of ease. This work offers a personal insight into the unexplainable dissonance that can be experienced in our daily lives.
