In times of global crisis, we see a turn toward mysticism. New York based choreographer Gillian Walsh presents Moon Fate Sin, her latest work developed in collaboration with Emily Hoffman. The performance ponders the pursuit of dance as a suicidal tendency – where do the death drive and the transcendence drive meet in dance? In Moon Fate Sin, we encounter the intangible and immaterial and reckon with embodied doom and escapism. With dancing that ranges from slow and sculptural to modernist formal abstraction, Walsh delves into early psychoanalytic theory, occultist beliefs and premonitions on the onset of world war.
