What does it mean to inherit a dance? German choreographer Kurt Jooss created his last piece, 'Dixit Dominus', in 1975 as a gift for Swedish-based Indian dancer Lilavati Häger, who gave it to Rani Nair to reconstruct in 2003. Future Memory (2012) returns to 'Dixit', this time focusing not on the choreography, but on the stories around it.
Both gentle and challenging, Future Memory embraces the possibility of an alternative history, one in which a ‘minor’ dance takes ten years of another artist’s life, and wherein the concepts of ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’ are more complicated than we might think. Nair’s one-hour solo utilises dance, spoken text, film, and singing in more and less spectacular ways.
