I am watching Igor and Moreno disagree – maybe even bicker – as they struggle to sort out a particular transition in the work. They are tired, and each of them, at different times, wants something to happen at a different time and in a different way. — Simon Ellis
Attention, friendship and dramaturgy is reflection on the choreographic work that Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas make and do, and an effort to critique my role as dramaturg during the process of creating A Room for All Our Tomorrows.
It was presented at Leeds Beckett University on 17 October 2015 as part of their Thinking Dance symposium.
