Etude 1: Act Without Words

Choreography, Performer; Seçil Demircan
Music; Engin Daglık


Samuel Beckett's mime plays Act Without Words 1, written for and rehearsed with a dancer, enabled Beckett to understand a dancer’s body regarding the performance action. Beckett makes use of dancer’s body energy which is accumulated in dancer’s perception and memory. In this play, the requirements of the text from the body allow several action phrases between the dancer and the text.
