The video below is a series of clips from the dance “bODY_rEMIX / gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS”. Incredible to watch in the flesh which I have twice. What I find fascinating is Chouinards use of “aid”. It comes in the form of crutches, a harness and in poignant ballet shoes which comment on the nature of the dancers dependance on this adaptation. Now I see everyday adaptations to the body in: high heels, fake nails, flippers and sporting equipment among many other items. I’ll make a list someday. Maybe that should be an art piece?
