New shows Counting To One Hundred and One Flute Note continue Burrows & Fargion's conversation with John Cage's Lecture On Nothing.
Dance and performance artists Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion describe what they do as 'handmade and human-scale'. They build performances with simple, non-spectacular elements that arrive at a deceptive viruosity, radiating delight even as they make the audience think.
Over the past ten years, the two artists have built a body of work that mixes the formality of music composition with a radical approach to performance. Counting To One Hundred and One Flute Note continue their conversation with the structure of John Cage's Lecture On Nothing, at once as a homage to and questioning of a way of thinking that has underpinned so much dance and performance in the last thirty years.
