re-membering the future - an improvisational dance event A performance by my buddy Ken Emig, for any of you in the Ottawa area. Do you remember the future? Four on the Floor Dance presents: re-membering the future - an improvisational dance event Dance Network 111a Rideau Street, 3rd Floor Ottawa, Ontario Friday, June 20, Saturday, June 21, and Sunday, June 22 at 8:00 pm For tickets and further show information call 613-237-0790 Ottawa (June 11, 2003) ? Do you remember the future? Are you surprised when you do? This is not a self-help course for the absent-minded. This is an exploration. Ottawa?s Four on the Floor Dance has been investigating dance improvisation for over 5 years. They use a multi-disciplinary approach to their work including dance, sport, theatre and visual arts. The performance, ?re-membering the future?, explores the notion that events that happen to us often have their roots in the past. To ?re-member? is to put together the details of the future as they happen ? something that lies at the heart of improvisational performance. The performers challenge is to recognize recurrences as they happen, in the moment, and to do more than simply repeat them, or let them pass us by unnoticed. These fleeting images are woven together to forge a physical expression of ideas and emotions. ?The goal for the group over this research period has been to notice our own patterns, habits, and preferences, and to build upon them to create more complete versions of who we are, alone and in relation to others,? says artistic director Peter Ryan. ?Re-membering the future?, an improvisational dance event featuring solo and trio works will take place at Dance Network Studios on Rideau Street from Friday, June 20th through Sunday, June 22nd at 8:00 pm each evening. Four on the Floor is Julie Cezer, Kenneth Emig, Elizabeth MacKinnon, under the direction of Peter Ryan.
