Zombie Aporia

« “Zombie Aporia” could be considered as a rock concert : on stage, a trio segues sequences of dance and song one after the other; sequences that are short like the titles of an album, filled with the chaotic energy of delirious fans or a totally crazy choir. Playing with the opportunities offered by the context, the three dancers explore the ambivalent relationships that link the body to the voice, dance to music, gesture to language.

“Zombie”, of course, means living dead. Aporia: a logical contradiction. The title “Zombie Aporia” makes a reference to pop culture side-by-side with a philosophical term. Zombie + Aporia = 2 words which – according to Google – had never ever been combined before we decided to do it. Our starting point was to create hybrid forms, to combine contradictory terms, to put contrasted rhythms together with the aim of creating performing monsters. In each sequence, we used several types of materials and made them collide: a musical rhythm clashes with a contrary dance rhythm, physical manipulation deforms the quality of the voice, written words merge with spoken words. [...] This encounter between opposite forms occasionally produces unexpected friction, occasionally unexpected synchronization. Our exploration focuses on the body, which we perceive as a multi-faceted entity where energy, language, movement, rhythm and perceptions interact in an extreme and chaotic way. [...]

“Zombie Aporia” harmonizes two contradictory trends: the naïve certainty of a manifesto and the cautious scepticism of our times. We take a stand to what we do, hesitatingly. We punctuate our principles with conviction yet we doubt as to their importance. We undertake, nevertheless, to exaggerate, to be over the top. »

Daniel Linehan

Updating: September 2011

Linehan, Daniel

Born in 1982 in Seattle, Daniel Linehan developed his choreographic art for four years in New York, notably with Miguel Gutierrez and the Big Art Group, Mark Haim and Wil Swanson. He partnered with Michael Helland for a myriad of duos presented in New York, Philadelphia and Montreal. In 2007-2008, he was resident artist at Movement Research (New York). Directly admitted to the P.A.R.T.S. Research programme, he has since established himself in Brussels. In his work, Daniel Linehan leans on language resources to enrich his questioning on movement. The sense emerges from a stream of disparate information – narrative, emotional, textual, visual and physical – brought together on stage.

Daniel Linehan created the solo “Digested Nois” in 2004 (Dance Theater Workshop, New-York), the quintet “The Sun came” (Triskelion Arts, Brooklyn) and “Human Content Pile”, for four dancers (The Kitchen, New-York), in 2006.

With his solo “Not About Everything” created in 2007 (Dance Theater Workshop, New York) he was acknowledged by the French audience. In 2009, his duo “Montage for Three” was presented during the “Rencontres chorégraphiques internationales” (International Choreographic Encounters) of Seine-Saint-Denis. “Zombie Aporia” is his latest creation.
