Equilibrium Photos by Rebecca Dietz

Equilibrium is an ongoing dialogue between photography and contact improvisation dance, a dance practice that utilizes shared weight, counterbalance, and intuitive movement in relation to another body and to the environment. The camera is both spectator and collaborator: observing intervals of fluidity and stasis in the dance, and encapsulating moments of clarity, rhythm and obscurity through still and time-lapsed exposures.

Rebecca Dietz (Photographer, Professor of Art, San Antonio College) is a photograph-based artist whose work utilizes photographic constructs of light and time to induce ambiguity and influence sensory perception of altered states. In this “unknowing” of the known world, the photographs capture dreaming and waking states that flicker between real and surreal.

Jordan Fuchs (Professor of Dance, Texas Woman’s University. Director, Jordan Fuchs Company) is a choreographer, performer and teacher whose choreography is grounded in improvisational practice, specifically the bias towards disorientation, sensation, a movement form he has been practicing for more than 30 years.

Melissa Sanderson (Associate Professor of Dance, Austin Community College) is a dance artist whose work spans choreography, performance, dance film, and education. She has danced with the Jordan Fuchs company since 2015.
