BROQUE

2004

A psychadelic study of the extra-pedestrain, BROQUE investigates the choreographers' obsession with public spaces, hotel hallways, airport walkways, camouflage and filigree. The piece, which features a set made of wallpaper and matching costumes, follows four characters enclosed in a corridor-like structure. Utilizing an intricate, highly structured movement vocabulary, the dancers individual characteristics, initially disguised by their landscape, gradually become revealed. In this contained environment, the role of camouflage is particularly emphasized, as the performers literally blend into their backdrop. The piece was re-staged in April 2005, and installed to fit inside the unusual performance venue of Fritz Haeg's geodesic dome, in his Sundown Salon series in Los Angeles, CA.
