Research for "Trust Me. Trust Me Not"
This project started as a research of what is at the core of chemistry in effective partnerships. We investigated methodologies to practice being fully present, being attentive listeners and committed partners. We played with vocabulary that crosses the fields of tango, modern dance, and theater and retains the vibrant presence and readiness of improvisation. We then begun choreographing a dance theater show around the subject of trust. Trust is the first casualty of trauma and, conversely, the most important step toward healing. Trust and the lack of it, is at the base of power issues and it is tested in passionate encounters. “Trust Me. Trust Me Not” delves into the fragile balance of trust and distrust negotiated in ambivalent relationships and the impact of well-grounded trust as a source of meaning and growth.
