the Suchness of Heni and Eddie
by Rosemary Lee and Ludivine Allegue
the Suchness of Heni and Eddie is a unique interactive DVD that focuses on the non-linear, multimedia potential of interactive DVDs as a means to reveal both the making and the performance of Rosemary Lee’s the Suchness of Heni and Eddie. This hybrid performance/lecture dem un-picks and exposes the layers of exploration within the choreographer’s and the performers’ creative processes. Intimacies, subtleties and fruitful accidents are revealed as the audience witness the dancers’ thought processes and physical challenges, and hear the struggles and discoveries of the choreographer Rosemary Lee. Simultaneously an intimate duet between the dancers, Eddie Nixon and Henrietta Hale, unfolds before the audience’s eyes.
The DVD includes intimate, fly on the wall rehearsal footage, notebooks, and other material that influenced the creation of this work as well as a detailed split screen edit of the performance itself. It exposes the ways that the dancers and the choreographer communicate together in the studio, as well as with their audience in the performance. It reveals the questions, doubts and revelations inherent in the making of the Suchness of Heni and Eddie.
