Jordan Fuchs presents Repentance for the Easily Amused directed by Jordan Fuchs with sound by Andy Russ. This 20-minute excerpt of the 60-minute full-length work Repentance for the Easily Amused traps three dancers in a choreographic structure in which each gesture in which each gesture, motion and action is a choice to never be returned to. The dance is a process of burning away artifice, training and style, until all that is left is concentration, focus and struggle at the overtly simple yet nearly impossible task of not repeating oneself in movement.
