STRIPPED BARE

by Jennifer De Leon

18th May 2018

A solo dance performance

Jennifer is back with another unique dance work 

Communion. Dancer, Watcher.
She is stripped
Bare
Gaunt
Bony
Old
Youth is beauty

I am born, barefoot and alone.

I will die, barefoot and alone.

Sometimes my friends come with me -

Often they go in the other direction.

I will die, barefoot and alone.

Grace - accompanies me.


So stripped, and attaining balance, sometimes not. (Are we voyeurs)?
A ritual of precarious athleticism…For this moment, stripped of her anxiety about ability, propriety, size, shape, age.

Her bird like movements, darting beady eyes and coy smile hide a tiger or panther that lies beneath her downward glare. Her body is an instrument that is finely tuned as if it is a manifestation of her life’s  work. The motor is still humming at an incredible pace.  Her instrument is  held together with bone, ligament and tendon and some true grit -  all of which is revealed in every movement, which has been prescribed to add meaning to her story.

Music 1 & 2: Elizabeth Drake / Japanese Story / Sue Brooks Director, Sue Maslin Producer, Alison Tilson Writer. (2003)
Music 3: Cat Hope, K.Ford, Basta Pex, Dave Brown / Abe Sade. (2007)
