My name is Courtney Barclay and my work is called Atom Dance. This piece of choreography is inspired by the subject matter in Bjork's music, entitled Atom Dance. It is first and foremost about loss - the loss of people, the loss of the parts of ourself that add to the whole. But then it is about the process of recovery. This process can best be found by dancing, an atom dance if you will, in which we open ourselves up enough to allow for connection to others. Our compositional makeup, the positives and negatives charges we posses, combine with others until we are whole again. It is a curious, vulnerable, and desperate dance but if we are willing to have it, we welcome others into our lives. Our souls can once again become connected with new ones. Chemical completeness can be restored.
