The Score

The Score for ROTOR is the abstraction of a choreographic form or idea, filmed from above to convey its structure, on the simplest level, to other artists. The choreography engages four dancers in a circular rotation, which suddenly breaks into linear pathways derived from the various forms of a knot. In this graphic image the dancers seem like atoms moving at their own wayward and varying paces, though they frequently re-enter the circular system, where the rotation continues like a dial or a clock. “I was interested in paring something down to its vital energy, and seeing if with generosity it can generate or lead to other things.” Siobhan Davies
