Project title: solo-cum-trio
Goals: solo-cum-trio is a community engagement performance project. This work seeks to raise awareness of holistic healing techniques, mental health, and self-defense in underserved communities in Vitry-sur-Seine and the La Chappelle neighborhood of Paris through a Franco-American movement research and wellness cultural exchange.
Description: solo-cum-trio uses dance to explore three spiritual archetypes: the healer, the saboteur, and the warrior. The work brings together experts from the fields of holistic healing, psychology, and martial arts at the service of the community.
Choreographer Kyra Hauck is being hosted in residency by Espace Canopy, an art gallery in Paris, in August-December 2021. The gallery is providing rehearsal space to develop the work, as well as a performance venue. Performance events will include self-defense and martial arts workshops provided for free to the community and round table discussions with panelists from each field. The performance, workshop, and round table will be projected on a double-facing screen at Espace Canopy and streamed simultaneously at the host institution in New York City, TheaterLab, as well as online.
