“ …magnificent, elegance and corporeal courage..” The Dance Current
In multiform, rising Toronto-based choreographer Amanda Acorn draws from the work and writing of painter Mark Rothko. A love letter to perpetual motion and testament to body magic, Acorn builds hypnotic cycles of movement repeated ad-infinitum. In multiform a singular body is both mechanism and magician; a perpetually pulsating, thrashing and undulating energy object. multiform compels us toward continued, exhaustive watching, dissolving the boundaries between abstract form and its containment through choreography.
