dedicated dances

Dedicated Dances is an ongoing experiment testing the limits of the power of intuition and the power of dance. For this project I dedicate a short dance for a particular person without their knowledge or witness. Dedicated Dances works towards dislodging the performer spectator relationship and trying to rebuild it through the power of intuition with the power of dance. If you dedicate a dance to someone and they don’t know about it, is it possible that they would feel it? Can dance act as a conduit between giving and receiving in order to produce a synchronicity which also acts as an interruption? And, how can the documentation of an event work to question and recreate memory?
