In this live installation, six dancers play with the limits of physical movement, opening themselves up to new perceptions of time and motion.
Recurrent Measures oscillates between the pleasure of spinning and meditative communion. In a space where spectators can come and go as they please, six spinning dancers become engrossed in cyclical, polyrhythmic gestures accompanied by work by composer Geronimo Inutiq and sound generated live by the dancers.
The limits of physical endurance – dancers are not robots – underscore the resilient strength of humans, sourced from their very fragility.
With this piece, George Stamos applauds human determination and portrays persistent actions as a motor for changing how we perceive the world, a way of resisting the diktats of productivity, hyper-performance and the fast pace of the modern world.

One of the intriguing aspects of works by George Stamos is his exquisite touch when it comes time to give the spectator a complete dance experience. The audience has the pleasant impression of being taken into consideration, of being an integral part of the equation in the creative process of a piece and in its presentation.
