Unison (2014)

With Unison Cecilia Lisa Eliceche works with one of the most compelling concepts in choreography: the simultaneous execution of the same movement by several people. But what does the idea of unison actually suggest? What are the political and even feminist possibilities of this concept? Eliceche asks whether we can redefine the way we experience being together in society through this formal tool. With an enigmatic yet precise ritual, the piece conjures up dance histories and popular traditions, weaving minimalism with complex relationships, subtlety highlighting our physical experience of togetherness.

Unison is a salutary and gutsy reminder of just how intelligent dance can be.

Writing About Dance

What I find so affecting is the persistence of an irrepressible collective happiness in the sheer physical pleasure of dancing so beautifully together
