Theo Clinkard Century Project

Recorded Presentation

Century Project is a hopeful dance work that spans a century, launching in 2020 and completing beyond our lifetimes, in 2120.

A hand made carpet becomes a site for a series of durational events, held every 5 years, that celebrate the knowledge and nature of the dancer.

An act of ‘Cathedral Thinking’, whereby its continuation is entrusted to future generations of artists, this intimate yet epic work uses dance to raise multiple questions about time, the moving body, the environment and how to think long term in order to be better ancestors.
