Emily Roysdon is one of four artists commissioned by If I Can’t Dance to produce a new work as part of Edition V – Appropriation and Dedication (2013–2014).
Roysdon will undertake an episodic development process that explores performance structures through the terms of ‘discomposition’ and ‘transition’. Through successive development cycles a series of movement vocabularies will accumulate as performance chapters, becoming layered through script and score. The project straddles geographic regions and a long-term duration, drawing together an expanding troupe of collaborators across disciplines including choreographers, writers, artists and musician/composers.
The new work is commissioned by If I Can’t Dance with commissioning partners STUK/Museum M (Playground) Leuven, the TBA festival of the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, and with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. The work is also supported by Corpus, European Network For Performance Art, funded through the European Union.
