Improvised Composition F (2010)
A piece for equal number of choreographer-dancers and dancers. All dancers and choreographer-dancers appear on stage; the latter is also free to move around. Each choreographer-dancer chooses one dancer to pair with, which once decided, may not change. The choreographer-dancers choreographs in real-time, and transmits the movement verbally or gesturally to his/her dancer throughout the performance. The pairing is, however, never discussed neither among the choreographers, nor with the dancers themselves. So any dancer may potentially react to any instruction from any choreographer. Contact Improvisation will, at last, be interesting. The ending is also instructed by the choreographer-dancer.
