Sediment: The Archive as a Fragmentary Base
Curated by: Denise Ryner

Dance precisely works on the preservation, continuation and emergence of  embodied archives. It  is an inheritance of “doing” that only occurs in the transmission between bodies: in the feeling of vibratory forces and the actualization of fleshly practices. Our bodies synchronously hold the latent and the emergent – our archive has always been in the making and it is arriving right now. This work sifts through an archive of dance heirlooms. Held by the structure of the Electric Slide, the work is a scored, real-time calling up of a personal dance history lodged in the flesh.
