Eleanor Bauer/Good Move (SWE) A lot of moving parts
På svenska kan ordet ”känna” användas både för att just känna – som i röra vid – eller att ha kunskap om något – att känna till.
Är det en slump, eller någon slags poetisk rättvisa?
A lot of moving parts vandrar runt i ett landskap av expansiva, o-linjära, mångsidiga och mångbottnade tankar och känslor. Hon arbetar med den friktion och kollision, kärleksaffär och djupa avgrunder som kan uppstå mellan dans och språk.
Eleanor Bauer skapar ett rum där publiken får lov att känna sin egen väg genom kvällen.
Eleanor Bauer is a performer and choreographer working at the intersections of dance, writing, and music. Her work is a profound synthesis of physical, conceptual, affective, emotional, formal, and aesthetic understandings. From talk shows to evening-length ensemble pieces, her versatile works range in scale, media, and genre, traversing different methods and categories of performance. Her solos ELEANOR! from 2005 and (BIG GIRLS DO BIG THINGS) from 2009 exemplify the humor, witt, and sensuality that mark her work.
Originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Bauer studied at Idyllwild Arts Academy in California, holds a BFA in Dance from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, completed the Research Cycle at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, and is currently a PhD candidate in Choreography at Stockholm University of the Arts. She has been producing her pieces via GoodMove vzw in Brussels since 2007 and was artist in residence at Kaaitheater in Brussels from 2013-2016. She continues to teach, write, lecture, and organize contexts for exchange of knowledge in the arts, including her after talk format PROTO TALKS.
Bauer has collaborated with musician and composer Chris Peck since 2003, creating several works together over the years. Bauer has worked as a performer with, among others, choreographers Xavier Le, Trisha Brown, Boris Charmatz / musée de la danse , Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker / Rosas, David Zambrano, Mette Ingvartsen and Veli Lehtovaara. She has collaborated as a choreographer and performer with visual artists Matthew Barney and Emily Roysdon. She has also performed with music groups like The Knife and Arjan Miranda.
In 2018, Bauer choreographed a new piece with Cullbergballeten and Yung Lean called NEAR.
