MOVIMENTO III – ILINX - Contemporary Dance Concert

Wellfleet Preservation Hall, July 14th & 15th
(Larger copy of flyer available in-story)

In the past two summers Preservation Hall in Wellfleet has presented the Movimento I and II contemporary dance concerts, which made use of various spaces of the Hall, including the front and back gardens. This year, Movimento III – Ilinx brings a different performance experience where, instead of the audience moving from place to place, they are moved… entering dances that explore possibilities that exist between stability and instability.

Ilinx (ee-links) in Greek means whirling water. It is a category of play described by sociologist Roger Caillois, a major figure in game studies. Ilinx is an attempt to temporarily disrupt “the stability of perception and inflict a kind of voluptuous panic upon an otherwise lucid mind.” 

The Movimento project, now in its third year, gathers choreographers and dancers from Brazil, USA, and Canada. It is a collective collaboration that involves an Artistic Residence and Performance. The Movimento Concerts are a result of these collaborations and artistic exchanges, under the direction of Leda Muhana and David Iannitelli.

Movimento III – Ilinx will be performed on July 14th and 15th at the Wellfleet Preservation Hall at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 and the show is appropriate for all ages. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
