In Daniel Linehan’s new creation dbddbb five dancers step to the same rhythm while they recite sound poetry together. In this marching rhythm, Linehan builds up an ingenious choreography with one rule: each step must be followed by another. Linehan defines the march as ‘a way to measure time with the body.’
The ‘march’ isn’t just a military exercise. It can also be a political protest, a form of sport or play, a ritualistic incantation or a dance party. In each of these manifestations the march is usually a mass movement that blurs the distinction between the individual and the group. Marches bring about solidarity and cooperation, but have the dangerous potential to stifle individual thought. dbddbb explores the pleasures but also the dangers of the forces that connect us to a group.
