Adam Linder: Some Cleaning (Hand in Hand)
Part of Conditions of Political Choreography
Some Cleaning (2013) is the first in a format of Choreographic Services by Adam Linder. This series of works seeks to establish a viable economic form for choreography to be at work, leveraging the per hour service model in which to do so. For Conditions of Political Choreography, the CCA has hired Adam Linder and Delphine Gaborit to clean the premises. The two dancers will employ a toolbox of choreographic actions to wipe the slate clean, prepare for other bodies to enter the context and to point to the fact that artistic labor is fundamentally conditional.
