Trio A Translation Project, onging, 36 minutes 40 seconds
Performers: Enid Smith, Ignacio Morales, Tony Rodriguez, Dongmei Wang
In summer 2020, I started translating Yvonne Rainer’s 1965 dance Trio A with a series of individuals with different professions and backgrounds. The individuals each had a loved person transcribe the original dance into a written score, which we worked with to devise new movements. During the rehearsal process, each performer produced writings which became the voiceover to the movements. The project takes the form of a film essay.
