Saraband is a ritual to celebrate dance as a practice that creates utopias. Saraband summons the body that thinks, orders itself, surrenders, shapes and transforms itself in response to reality. The figures move in a vortex of sensations, past and present episodes, of things seen, heard and experienced. It evokes the memory of the bodies, the history of their dances, but also their place in a broader movement sustained by the earth, its rhythm and pulsation. Tracing or traversing space, traversing time and simultaneously being traversed by it to allow past time to permeate the present. Tracing becomes a way of questioning this passage without trying to answer.
