Áine Stapleton’s choreographic score is a landscape of words within which to compose dance. As a series of possibilities, the score encourages movement using a non-directive vocabulary. The dancer is invited to respond to a score that constructs associations to language. Words are chosen with a specific intention to structure a dance. There are metaphors, juxtapositions of meaning, and words in motion. The score’s text inspires ingenuity and the dance vocabulary is received both as a psychical and physical challenge to overcome predictability.
