A Moving

Paul Wong

2013, 18:21 minutes, colour


A performance created and presented in the context of ‘ Letters’ an exhibition of 1968 paintings by Michael Morris at the Belkin Gallery.

Dance performed and created by Rob Kitsos and Kim Stevenson with music by Martin Gotfrit. The title of this new dance is taken from a discussion in 1982 between Monroe Beardsley, Sally Banes, and Noel Carroll about the nature of what constitutes dance movement. This debate, which continues today (and was challenged in the post-modern dance movement in the 1960s) hinges on the difference and the context between the way we move in everyday life and the added “vigor, fluency, expansiveness or stateliness” found in ‘dance’ movement. “A Moving” pushes the boundaries of this question in the context of a contemporary moving installation.

Performed March 29, 2012 in conjunction with “Letters: Michael Morris and Concrete Poetry Exhibition”, Jan. 12 – Apr. 8 Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC.
