New Work

By Jeanine Durning
In 2020, New York based choreographer Jeanine Durning will make a new work on Candoco with Durning's practice of nonstopping at its core.

Jeanine Durning is an Alpert Award winning choreographer and performer from New York whose work has been described by The New Yorker as having both “the potential for philosophical revelation and theatrical disaster.”

Choreographer’s Notes

I began my research with Candoco in much the same way I have begun most projects in the last decade, with a practice I call nonstopping. At its core, nonstopping is a process of undoing through, paradoxically, nonstop doing. It works with uncensoring movement and speech as acts of freedom and imperative force and change.  Sometimes proposing impossible possibilities and acts of keen attention and urgency, the crafted decision-making of the Candoco ensemble in the midst of these proposals, in real-time is the foundation of this work, highlighting both precarity and precision. What strikes me about the Candoco ensemble is their intimacy, trust and generosity toward one another and this is a perfect place from which to interrogate choreography as a container for radical togetherness and transformation.
