Can human movement mimic the natural world? How does the experience of such movement teach us the value in working slowly and with balance, especially while living in an urban environment? Dancers-choreographers Corinne Cappelletti and Eva Perrotta unfurl the answers to these questions with their collaborative performance piece, IMPRINT: OnebyOne. Rooted in somatic practice, OnebyOne is a study of growth, lived experience, and self-discovery that encompasses sound, touch, movement, and bits of nature. Each performance is interactive and seeks to create a collective experience of awakening awareness. OnebyOne premieres on April 17th and 18th at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn. In this interview, Corinne talks in depth about the history, process, and future plans for the project.

“Carry your Burdens” AiOP Festival NYC October 1-10 2011 

Interview with Choreographer, Corinne Cappelletti: http://www.artinoddplaces.org/corinne-cappelletti-art-in-odd-places-2011-artist-will-carry-your-burdens-this-october/

About the project:

“Carry your Burdens” a performance map of burdens will be performed as part of Art in Odd Places (AiOP) with 65 other artists. AiOP is an annual festival that presents visual and performance art in public spaces along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October.

The intention of “Carry your Burdens” is to engage in empathy through endurance, metaphor, and performance. Traversing Manhattan from west to east in the morning we perform at nine destination points, landmarks where a personal burden was shared. At dusk we return to the Hudson River carrying one another and the burdens we’ve embodied. When the performers encounter another person bearing a burden, they stop to feel, see, and describe it. The duets transcend elements of physical fatigue but also the emotional exhaustion of carrying the burdens of 14th Street. Expanding the map into performance, burdens are lifted.
