Ben Evans: Déjà Vu, At Once

After adapting my solo from Deborah Hay’s 2009 Solo Performance Commissioning Project (SPCP) in Findhorn, Scotland, I revisit the performance score “At Once.” Speaking and dancing, thinking and moving, I pull from Hay’s original choreography as well as two established philosophers of perception, “collaborating” with all three in real-time despite their absence. Premiered in San Francisco, this new work explores the question of authorship in choreography and the obstacles of collaboration, and celebrates the relief that comes from following directions.

Ben Evans writes and makes performance and presents his work throughout the U.S. and Europe.
