MAXINE HEPPNER : CREATIONS
Description of work
Solo dance with rebar set pieces and one still figure.
2 versions: 8 min, 14 min.
premiere: Dancemakers, Toronto 1999
Contrasting Elements. Industrial-Natural.
A floor maze of shining metal rebar poles. A live vocal breath-score revealing the inner life of the woman.
Steeling herself to back through the steel maze, the woman manages to weave within the inhospitable environment with movement as sinuous as vines.
