In AlShe/Me, Linda Hayford develops her research on metamorphosis and physical transformation.
This creation for (and with) a brother and a sister makes central the notions of influences on each other, whatever it is suffered, perceived or internalized.
This two-people play, between similarities and subtle differences, illustrates the exclusive relations that is able to link one to another. Beyond words and implicit empathy, it gives place to each one to develop its own singularity.
Although Linda Hayford is best known as an ambassador for popping, her dance practice has evolved through the encounter between genres and moves. Taking a crossover of styles as her starting point, the choreographer seeks an aesthetic focused on metamorphosis.
Her inaugural solo Shapeshifting materializes the power represented by the passage fromone form to another in an intimate fresco that deploys a succession of chimeras.
In AlShe/Me, Linda Hayford, working alongside her older brother Mike Hayford, turns her attention to the ephemeral nature of popping. In a journey through senses and gestures, the choreographer uses alteration to reflect on identity which culminates in the complexity of displacement.
