VIM VIGOR has been back in the studio for just over one month developing our latest creation FOREVER, which premieres here in NYC in 2019.
In FOREVER, a spare wedding reception becomes a surreal weigh-station, where characters assess the meaning and value of their desires. The wedding is over and a new chapter is beginning, in which a multitude of conscious and unconscious urges collide. The bride and groom are not from the story of one couple, but from the mythology surrounding marriage, and in scenes that fly into and out of physicality, these figures appear at once admirable and despicable, as touched by the magic of love, and as lost, disconnected, and doomed. We get the sense that the world is going to let them down, and recognize their futile and heroic attempts to make it fit their plans.
VIM's newest members, along with choreographic collaborator and founding member Jason Cianciulli, have all been in a deep dive exploring their characters in FOREVER. We've already cooked up some crazy scenes - and are finding new ways to tease out the inner lives of these conflicted figures. The company will definitely be exploring some of our latest research at VIM's upcoming weekend workshop, November 10+11 - come join us!
