1. "Use Your Head" performance by Katherine Evans & Kee Ensemble

    Use Your Head is a piece composed by Kai Evans and the Kee Ensemble. The piece conceptualizes movement and sound as equal partners in the composition and invites the audience to have a different kind of dance experience, not only perceiving how movements look but also how they sound. The only music in Use Your Head is created live by the bodies and voices of the performers on stage.

    Use Your Head is a haunting work about people trying to connect and understand one another. The performers wrestle with new possibilites of communication. The voice, normally isolated from contemporary dance movement, finds its place in and among the performers bodies as phyiscal vibrations. Voice works together with movement to communicate in a new performative language. The categories and rules we impose on ourselves and others in every day life do not apply here. We invite you, the audience, to let yourself be changed by this world we are exploring.

  2. The Kee Ensemble works on the principle that every movement is a sound, every sound is a movement, an idea introduced and developed by Rob Liethoff, who works with the ensemble as a vocal coach and dramaturg.

    This innovative approach to the training and performance of dancetheater supports a deep interest in the implicit rules of real-world communication. Does the mode of communication affect what one is able to say? The Kee Ensemble explores new connections between the mediums of voice and movement we can open up new doors and communicate new things. To this end, research in areas as diverse as neuroscience, philosophy, anthropology, and linguistics informs our work.

    The exploration of these connections signifies the birth of a new performative language. This language is absolutely necessary, because each new language reveals new territory of human experience. You cannot think a sentence without knowing the words to compose the sentence.

    Like Alice in Wonderland and the white rabbit going into the black hole, we invite you to explore this unknown territory with us. We think you will be surprised by what you can find here.
