Tender human pathways punctuated by polarized collisions: The Point is a vibrant quintet by CORE Artistic Director Sue Schroeder, inspired by the work of Conceptual visual artist Sol LeWitt and Experimental novelist Raymond Federman.
The work of LeWitt (1928-2007), specifically his 1971 Wall Drawing #65, is an important reference for The Point. LeWitt’s full title illuminates its relationship to the dance: Wall Drawing #65 / Lines not short, not straight, crossing and touching, drawn at random using four colors, uniformly dispersed with maximum density, covering the entire surface of the wall. The writings of Federman (1928-2009) inspire choreographic possibilities because of their graphic design and word play that speak directly to improvisational movement scores and structures in a myriad of ways.
This short video shares excerpts from the full-length work The Point, by choreographer Sue A. Schroeder. Intended to give a brief snapshot of the longer work, this video shows brief sections for the premier performance of the work in Houston, TX.
