Basically is an ongoing live project that includes nonlinear dance choreographies that fold in on themselves like portals through time, fugue-like contrapuntal guitar melodies, vocals and Ableton soundscapes, daily I Ching castings that locate us in a shifty universe, journal entries that become our textbook, shrine readings and unscheduled time that leaves room for contingency. Visitors are invited into this shifting constellation as the doors to the studio are often left open. They become involved in making and remaking the environment; a sociality of difference
The structure of Basically is a choreographic game with interactive and playful rules that allow for relations to develop. Dance choreographies branch from this basic structure, they revolve around themselves in varying undetermined patterns reliant on an electro-magnetic force that settles into a perpetual but shifting orbit.
