Repetition - persistence of memory
When Eleanor, my niece, improvised a dance for me, with many repetitions and variations, I knew
I wanted to develop it further. I showed the recording to the dancer/choreographer Marianne
Langenegger and together we developed this parallel choreography.The creative spontaneity of the
original dance is contrasted with Marianne's more staid and introverted movements. Although the
movements echo each other Marianne's are clearly those of an adult, if a slightly neurotic one.
This has also been performed live.
