Diary of an Image by DD Dorvillier – Danspace Project

Diary of an Image by DD Dorvillier


“DD is always on the move but never removed. She is likely to jump up in the middle of a three-hour conversation to turn, leap, gesture or move a piece of office furniture. These physical utterances are aspects of her real-time syntax, not interruptions, but part of her expanded sense of a poetic language spanning movement, objects, ideas, emotions, sounds and language.”

– Judy Hussie-Taylor

“…A dance with an unclear history, without references, a dance you could imagine, a dance you can only feel, a temporary dance, a missing dance, a dance you invented but have not yet seen, an unseen dance, a dance without bodies, an invisible dance, a preserved dance, a dance which is waiting to happen…”

– DD Dorvillier
