Alex Bazcynski-Jenkins

The Hole Together

London and Warsaw-based choreographer Alex Baczynski-Jenkins’ work occurs at the intersection of performance and dance, examining queer politics through ideas of desire, intimacy and love. A central part of his work is the use of performance as an agent for what he describes as ‘other-worlding’, often examining affection and its deficits, desire and alienation, touch and lack.

Baczynski-Jenkins’ work is dialogic and he develops ‘vocabularies’ that range from micro-gestures to poems and ‘social dances’, picking apart everyday practices that emerge in situations such as play, friendship and desire.  Each episode of The tremble, the symptom, the swell and the hole together has its specific embodied vocabulary through which the performers navigate intimate and fragmentary exchanges, reflecting on the edges of subjectivity, corporeality and relationality.
