Common Fate refers to our perception of individuals moving in parallel paths as a unified group, regardless of any actual connection between them. Five animations, five pieces of music and a series of dances cycle through one another, creating distinct three-minute performances. As the show unfolds, the solos are combined into duos, triplets, and full-cast choreography, while musical themes layer in the increasingly complex live score. Watercolour animations provide a dreamlike cast to the bodies in motion, projected environments that shift between the concrete and symbolic. What seemed tragic in one context becomes laughable in another, what appeared silly takes on depth. A beautiful new work to immerse yourself in, where cyclical phases wash over the viewer like the tide.
I Will Tell You Exactly What I Think of You is an emotional endurance test, a talk show where the host is there to work out her desires and prejudices, using the audience as a cipher. Simultaneously fulfilling and questioning the urge to see oneself reflected in another, the audience seeks something of themselves in the answers. Self-selecting as guests, they submit themselves to a public reading from a stranger bound to tell them exactly what she thinks of them. SummerWorks marks the first time this popular work will be performed as a live-streamed web-series in front of a studio audience. Like a rollercoaster, you take your seat and hold on until it’s over.
