BodyMeld – new choreographies Contemporary dance, choreography and dance workshops by Zornitsa Stoyanova

Sour (2010)

Sour (2010) is a duet by Toshi Makihara and Zornitsa Stoyanova commissioned by the Performance Mix Festival in NYC in April 2010. This improvised structure plays with images of old age, dissatisfaction, rage and contentment. The character’s journey leads you through quirky interactions, unexpected events, and uncomfortable and hilarious states.

“The wizard of sonic improv, Makihara has always been a wildly physical performer, and his grimaces and wide-angled moves around the single drum surrounded it with an anticipatory aura, making us almost see the silence from which his Cage-y sounds arose.” ~ Miriam Seidel, Philadelphia Inquirer
