ED2012 Physical Review: Lost In Details (Aleksandra Borys)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2012

Aleksandra Borys’s dance is eloquent enough, but once she begins she does not do much to make the work accessible or particularly surprising for the uninitiated viewer. We might not expect her to: Edinburgh is just one of many places on the piece’s tour, and this is not intended to be commercial art. It’s slow and abstract, lacks tension, although some of the images are striking and it does reach a climax of sorts. The performance is captioned by two well-chosen “Alice in Wonderland” quotes, and for anyone looking to gain inspiration this kind of dance can be exceptional. But aside from that, there’s not much here for those with less than an academic interest in the contemporary.

Dancebase – National Centre for Dance, 4-12 Aug (not 6), 4.30pm.
