Muscle Memory

What if practice was the performance?

An architectural critique to unseen processes, Muscle Memory elevates practice over performance by engaging the fundamental technique of Vaganova barrework’s elements to articulate muscle memory of the body curated through repetition, engagement, and observation. The promenade reflects in a sequential order, from plie to grand battement, the essential foundation from which all performance stems – which is often overlooked.
