MAXINE HEPPNER : CREATIONS
J'ai perdu les paroles
Description of work
In what situations of life do words fail us?
When we have no words, what do we do so we can understand?
and the experiences beyond words? all movement-sound -light?
In 1994 Maxine was living and working in languages that she spoke well and many languages she did not. These questions underlaid most of her creative choices of that time. She brought them to the forefront creating this work with dancers of the Kreativitet ensemble when artist-in-residence for the Indonesia International Festival. The enquiry continued in two other language environments - in Across Oceans' Toronto iterations and in Montreal through a LADMMI commission.
