Morgan’s Last Chug

Choreographer: Emmanuel Gat

Morgan’s Last Chug, is a study on layered temporality. A multifaceted look at the experience of passing time, through both the choreographic and the audible. Through a series of relentless variations, using different modalities of time related composition, the dancers explore dance as an inherently musical practice, bringing forth its temporal aspects and mechanisms. Beckett’s compelling monologue from “krapp’s last tape”, in itself a theatrical counterpoint between live and recorded text, highlights the innumerable ways in which the human experience is inhabited and highlighted by passing time.
