R1 – An Exploration of Content from the Choreographic Wastebasket

Choreographer Liam Francis is an advocate for rehabilitating discarded creative offerings.

Consequently, R1 is a performance piece composed entirely of rejected choreography banished to the choreographic wastebaskets of creative processes.

In particular, R1 draws from the wastebaskets of five creative processes that Francis was creatively involved in.

R1 is the first in a range of experiments that investigate the recovery of choreography that has been discarded.

The recycled choreography in R1 finds its texture, rhythm and dynamic from research into the idiosyncrasies of human communication.

Simone Damberg Würtz, Liam Francis, and Hannah Rudd will perform R1 at Dancing Lives.
