Contemporary Dance Solo
As part of rEvolver Festival 2019
May 24–June 2, 2019 | Vancity Culture Lab
(Robert Azevedo, Vancouver)
Created and performed by: Robert Azevedo
Azevedo replicates dance solos by tween and teen dancers drawn from YouTube dance competitions, while the audience watches the original videos projected alongside his dancing body.
The catch? These dances were created as short powerhouse showcases for young flexible girls. And Azevedo is performing 18 of them in a row. In performing these solos in succession, Azevedo pays homage to the skill and ability of these young dancers, while reframing their dances to satisfy his own parameters of contemporary dance.
Inspired by everyone who wanted to know why he didn’t audition for So You Think You Can Dance.
