The Making of Conundrum

“Conundrum” is a work in progress to be performed later this spring. This session is an opportunity for an audience to experience, in real time, the “methods” used to create a new dance work.

 

“”Conundrum” is a piece about situational chaos. Pushing movement to its wildness while retaining clarity. The dance is set to Brahms String Quartet #1. It is a fully loaded, rockin’ quartet that still has a very sweet, endearing quality.

 

I found this music while cleaning out an old CD drawer that I haven’t looked in for 25 years. When I listened for the first time, I wondered why I kept it. I think when you hear it you will know.

 

The piece has very simple concepts. The first movement begins with a solo which is set in a 3×3 box and a challenge to the dancer to stay in that space. With each subsequent movement another dancer is added until the quartet is full and the entire stage is available to them.

 

The “Conundrum” is expressed in the first movement. It is unmistakable and beautiful.

 

Thank you,

Peter Stathas”
