Clara Furey, on stage with Winnie Ho and Be Heintzman Hope, builds an architecture of pleasure. Empathy and attentive listening to the needs of the body and others nourish this inhabited trio, which works the movement over time, the persistence, seeking to release tensions by insisting on the repetition of endless loops. Dog Rising invites to an extreme physical journey, a bewitching, haunting, penetrating spiral. An invitation to build and regenerate physical strength from shocks, discomfort mutated into joy.
