Antoine Hunter Dancing in 2009 Sins Invalid: An unashamed look at sex, beauty and disability
This season I will be working with Sins InValid. I found myself thinking deep about my work. I thought I share the world what is it to be deaf. Of course many of you seen my youtube feeling about expressing myself as deaf and a dancer. Many people said this should be a solo- well I decided for Sins Invalid show is the place to do it.
I thought i would just do one dance and with music and a video express about dancing and being deaf. Some how it was not enough, later my Icon like Michael Jackson but Merce Cunningham die. I thought I pay an honor to him but using his idea. He often have many different kind of dance and many kind of music and mix the dance and music up. I love it however I keep one dance and the audience will get a chance to roll the dices and it will pick what ever those 6 different track music I have set up.
they would say "Antoine-DeVinci Hunter, an accomplished deaf choreographer/dancer, asks the audience to share the element of risk he faces every day as a deaf person by rolling a die, each side of which corresponds to a different sound score."
Then you will see me do the same dance again but NO MUSIC! I wonder what people will say!
