Co-choreographer of Recess, Spencer Dickhaus, sits down and answers our questions:
– Introduce your work with three words:
– What themes do you love to explore?
I most often work from within the pieces I’m making, where my relationship to the body is not about its dexterity but its ability to be a conduit for energy and connection. I’m striving to reflect real world sensations on animated bodies to highlight the human experiences of exhaustion, desire, conflict, shame, and play.
– What does excite you?
Creating a space where the unknown rules is exciting to me.
– What music do you use in the studio?
I like silence in the studio while I’m working but I also really appreciate pop music – it feels like a chemical rush to me.
