Every weekend, segments from the original performance Crack Nerve Boogie Swerve by Alexis Blake are selectively performed by a group of dancers and musicians, facilitating a dynamic interplay among all the different elements of the exhibition. Each new performance unfolds either as a solo or a duet, reprised on multiple occasions, affording both performers and spectators the latitude to reimagine the collective corporeal experience engendered by the original performance.

Performances take place at 15:20, 15:50, 16:20, 16:50.
Duration: 10 min.

0091 Quick Selects Alexis Blake High Line 2

By isolating certain segments of the performance and recontextualising them as stand-alone ventures, this deliberate choice invites contemplation imbued with introspection. It juxtaposes the broken with the unbroken, summoning echoes from the past while offering glimpses of prospective futures, all in an attempt to carve out fleeting moments of coherence.
