Choreography · Liz Santoro
Collaboration · Pierre Godard
With Mélanie Giffard, Cynthia Koppe, and Liz Santoro

Beginning with the assertion that the presence of an outside gaze creates a performative action upon an individual, We Do Our Best work explores what is taken and what is given in the exchange between watching and being watched. It focuses on the perceptions of strength and weakness experienced in holding the attention of another. What happens if one does not remain in places where one is strongest? What strength is revealed in the act of subjugation? Through the lens of the female body on stage We Do Our Best investigates the performer’s position as an entity to be commanded, to be looked at, to be exposed.
