The Symphonic Body

The Symphonic Body is a performance made entirely of gestures. It is a movement based orchestral work performed by people from any collected community; a city, village, institution, or business. Instead of instruments, individuals in this orchestra perform gestural portraits based on the motions they use everyday. Ann likes to think of The Symphonic Body as part social sculpture, part jazz improvisation, part gestural tapestry. It is an invitation to re-perform ourselves and to celebrate the minute and grand gestures that make up the dance of the everyday.
