Inlayers: contemporary dance for dummies – The Gauntlet

A performance that’s labelled an “interactive online reality dance show” may sound like a combination Jersey Shore/Dancing with the Stars-themed video game or something equally nauseating, but Inlayers is, thankfully, not.
Taryn Javier and Jenn Doan are two Canadian artists who thrive off dancing, collaborating and exploring, and their project and performance Inlayers touches on all three through a collision of social media and contemporary dance.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, perhaps now is the time to dust off your dance shoes and explore what the Calgary dance community has to offer. After all, if you’re crippled with the two-left-feet syndrome that so many people suffer from, the least you can do is go watch someone perform who doesn’t suffer from the same foot dyslexia as you, right?

Dance project aims to engage audience through online media – Calgary Journal

Contemporary dancers rehearsed in a studio, their group discussion was initiated by asking questions about love. The discussion amongst the dancers turned into individual reflection.
They talked to themselves out loud uttering words of frustration, sadness, guilt and pain. Each dancer shamelessly expressed how they felt — some cursing — as they spoke over one another in unison.

In the past few rehearsals i had a breakthrough, which nominated me as a featured dancer for those rehearsals. For one of the rehearsals Pam, Melina and i had to use Melina’s solo she developed from the day before and find ways to use contact in it. We played with some lifts and contact through our limbs and taryn would come often to see what she liked, and fix what she didn’t like. There were a number of lifts where i was the one that was lifting and since im not as experienced in lifting liked to have more time to figure pathways out. But before we got to a point where we actually got it, taryn would change it because it was not working. I was annoyed a bit and did tell her half way through to back off a bit just because we all need the time to figure stuff out. Which after the three of us found our rhythm and cleared up pathways and it was all fine and dandy! She later made us do our phrase we made x3 to the point of exhaustion which actually turned out pretty well from what she said.
