Body of Work
It is often said that dance is a temporal art form that disappears as soon as the performance ends. Dancers, however, claim the opposite: every choreography leaves traces in the body. Physically and concretely, in muscles and injuries, as well as less visibly through the repetition and memory of movements that continue to resonate in the body of the dancer.
In Body of Work, Daniel Linehan goes in search of those traces. He delves into the choreographic material he has created over the past fifteen years and discovers fragments still present in his body after all this time. Together with intimate memories from his childhood, he blends them into a brand new dance solo: a choreography of the passing of time that shows how the past is always anchored in the present.
