The work Fake Dances
builds on Samuel Feldhandler’s approach to choreography through translating musical practices in dance. It focuses on jazz forms and the tool of the fake book (a collection of scores with only rudimentary information used by Jazz musicians).Fake Dances
is a collection of short dances, each consisting of a written theme and a framed improvisation. These dances follow each other, much like tunes follow each other during a jazz concert. The work brings set material and improvisation in dialogue and explores a space between composition and interpretation.
It can be presented in various constellations of performers.
