#SpeakingInDance, in 3 videos | “The center is not one place,” the Congolese choreographer #FaustinLinyekula told his cast, members of @itsshowtimenyc, which provides performance opportunities for #subwaydancers. “You are the center of your own world. Any space is important.” Faustin’s “Festival of Dreams,” part of the @fiafny festival Crossing the Line, a co-commission with @dancinginthests, is the culmination of a 2-week residency with 23 dancers in which he is creating a structure for improvisations. It will be performed at Roberto Clemente Plaza in the South Bronx on Saturday and @weeksvilleheritagecenter in Brooklyn on Sunday. As Faustin sees it, even more important than the final product is getting these dancers back into their bodies. “They just jump,” he said with a wince. “I’m like, ‘Guys, if you want to dance for long, you need to take care.’ ” @tailzthedancer said, “He’s expanding our minds through our dancing.” And @force_wiildkard, the only woman, told the @nytimes writer @giadk: “Everything he does comes from our own personalities and creativity. I never know what to expect, and I like that — it’s a little bit of fear, and a little bit of excitement.” @sbrackbill made these videos — swipe left to see 2 more! — for #SpeakingInDance, our weekly series exploring the world of dance.
