The US Premiere of Choreography for Blackboards, a work by European choreographer Michael Kliën (with dramaturge Steve Valk), weaves the drawings of seven performers info a collective dance of minds. Drawing on seven monolithic blackboards, seven local and international performers follow exact, rehearsed procedures over a set period of time. As the drawings develop and become more expressive, audience members are invited to interact with the performances or simple observe. Once the choreography has come to an end, a landscape of drawings is left for display and contemplation.
Choreography for Blackboards performs as part of the COIL 2012 Festival.
