2020 July 25-Aug 15/ Triple Expo, Gymnasium Gallery (NY).
Triple Expo is a dance. In it, West produces an economy of movement, isolating formal qualities of social behavior and signifying architecture, celebration, sport, and transportation. Four dancers move within the parameters of latitudinal and longitudinal lines on a low oval stage, the topography mapping their movements and rests. They develop patterns of behavior from their surrounds, cycling through sequences that respond to and support each other. Triple Expo considers the aesthetics of communal work; what is the form of the party? West choreographs a community as it speeds up, atrophies, and recycles, addressing networked systems and the performers laboring within them.
Dancers: Sharleen Chidiac, Megan Curet, Owen Prum, Susannah Yugler
