(Or Just the Right Words)
An improvisational dance piece inspired by untranslatable words.
Created by the Ensemble led by Artistic Director of DOTS
Emma Rose Brayndick
Mot Juste is an improvisational dance piece exploring the many words we need to say just the right thing. Many languages have words which we don't have a direct corresponding word for in English, and they can be poignant, funny, inspiring, and precise ways to express our myriad of experiences and emotions. Along with live music, we are using movement to explore language, and language to explore emotion. In these divisive times we are exploring the multiplicity of our experiences and sending some joy and beauty out into the world. Join us to see if we can find le Mot Juste--or just the right words.
