Mono No Aware
Attached, revised from its original version in 2011, was presented by Core Project at EMP Collective in Baltimore. “How can you create an intimate connection with a complete stranger?” This second version of Attached involved locating a partner who lives in Baltimore, someone I had never danced with. After some communication about the score of the dance plus minimal rehearsal, we performed two rounds of this duet, incorporating the same Lycra sheet and vocal feedback loops from the original version of the piece.
