Zombie Aporia is a dance performance that is composed of many small pieces, like a rock music concert, or a book of poetry. The dancers use their voices in order to create an intricate connetion between dance and music, so that the dance and the music are both being generated by the very same bodies. The performance breaks down the boundaries that separate body from voice, sound from image, rhythm from meaning. Zombie Aporia seeks to discover possibility within apparently impossible contradictions: music that is the result of dancing, emotional expression that begins physically, spontaneous feelings that are designed, words that give more of a sense of vibration than meaning.
