"Phantasies" choreographed and performed by Ainesh Madan
"Phantasies" is an evening-length contemporary dance solo and the most physical work to date by multi-talented choreographer and performer, Ainesh Madan.
A pledge of allegiance to the eternal pursuit of happiness, "Phantasies" questions our understanding of “the underdog” and his/her/their role in accepting, or refusing, the struggles that define our daily existence. "Phantasies" provides a complex, non-linear, excavation of the potential that lies embedded within every living being.
With "Phantasies", Madan teams up with world-renowned designer Agyesh Madan (founder of neo-luxury brand Stòffa), and long-time collaborator Stephanie Saywell.
“The play of children is determined by their wishes – really by the child’s ONE wish, which is to be grown-up... He always plays at being grown-up; in play he imitates what is known to him of the lives of adults.” ~ Signmund Freud – The Poet and Daydreaming
Phantasies was developed with the help of Gibney Dance’s Work Up Residency, as well as The Performance Project @ University Settlement
Presented as part of the Guest Artist Series at The Performance Project @ University Settlement.
Venue: Speyer Hall, University Settlement
