Radio III is an Indigenous futuristic concert, a beautiful and uncomfortable dance performance and a perverse triangle of shifting power that seeks to be unfaithful to both minimalism and postmodern dance’s claims to so-called “neutrality”. In this work, we seek to live, layer and situate form in our bodies, as they evoke past, present and future possibilities. Choreographed and performed by Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Zoë Poluch and Elisa Harkins, music composed by Elisa Harkins, Radio III was born in part from our common interest in minimalism in art and music. We asked: how can we work on the performativity and spatial principles of minimalism while questioning the universalism associated with this aesthetic? We made a dance that haunts the recognizable toolbox of abstraction, form, repetition and pattern by striving to make visible what has been kept invisible in colonial systems of recognition and aesthetics. In collaboration with Agora de la danse.
