Intimate Gestures draws our attention toward relationships and zeroes in on the individual. Gestures can be actions or courtesies. They can be unique and yet universal. The communication of a gesture of kindness, or that special body language between lovers, can be transformative for those witnessing it.

This piece will explore the new kinds of formal structures and developments that become accessible when engaging in an improvised practice, when the various metaphors (of architecture, of storytelling, of countless others) that are inescapably linked to composed forms are dispensed with, in favor of something more unconceptualizable, subconscious and elemental.

​The most prominent characteristic of Gaynor's work is an intense physicality: straight lines, flying leaps, powerful unisons, and lots and lots of running.

The Location of Figures
Music: Quentin Tolimieri
Lighting Design: Andrew Dickerson
8 Dancers
60 minutes
Premiere: Danspace Project, April 2016

The Location of Figures is inspired by American born conceptual artist Sol LeWitt. The piece reveals human relationships based simply on lines in space, as density, angles and structures continue to shift. Dancers move through the square space as the floor is divided and subdivided. As intensity builds and more dancers occupy an increasingly smaller space, the work considers how relationships between the dancers (or figures) shifts depending on continually changing spatial boundaries.
