New Tricks
Choreographed and Performed by Christopher House

New Tricks uses costume, disguise, props and 44 years of choreographic research to explore new ways of moving in a veteran body. The work is unabashedly personal and playful and is governed by a desire to embody liveness, the ambiguity of gesture, the potential of failure and inefficiency, and the queering of both the imagination and the body. A question hovering over the making of New Tricks is “How would I move if I dared?”

Run time is approximately 50 minutes. Please note this work contains nudity.
