“BODY of WORK ” Daniel Linehan/Hiatus @Saitama Arts Theater

Memories carved in the body.

William Faulkner — ‘The past is never dead. It’s not even past.’

Daniel Linehan, a Belgium based American choreographer who studied at the Brussels dance school P.A.R.T.S of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, will be premiering his solo work “BODY OF WORK” in Japan at the Saitama Arts Theatre on March 12 and 13.

In this autobiographical dance, Linehan is dealing with the memory of the death of his father. He explores this idea in relation to his own body and his own history of dancing and choreographing. He proposes a retrospective archaeology, digging into his past 15 years of creating dances, uncovering fragments of choreography that still remain in his body after all this time.

David will also be serving as a navigator at the “Saitama Dance Laboratory Vol.5” to be held at the same time, and will hold workshops for young Japanese dancers and artists.
