A 3-channel video installation of a durational dance, CROWDS investigates the choreography of crowd typologies and the slippages between them.

About

La MaMa Galleria presents the NYC premiere of CROWDS, a 3-channel video installation by filmmaker and choreographer Sarah Friedland from November 7 - December 1, 2019 as part of the 2019 Performa Biennial Consortium. Animating a durational dance of 22 dancers fluctuating between dozens of crowd types, CROWDS investigates the choreography of crowd typologies and the slippages between them. 

Much like a flock of murmurating birds, the thresholds between these crowd types are blurred and distorted: the rocking of bodies in prayer transmute into the shaking of raving dancers, the training exercises of sports teams slide into the structured formations of fascist spectacles. CROWDS articulates the choreographic register embedded in our political discourses and polemics.
