A solo to Gustav Mahler and the Daily News by David Bloom
In our age of constant transformations, the dancing human body always holds an element of powerlessness. Watching someone flail their arms around on stage is a little weird considering everything else that’s going on in the world. The solo project Alles Vergängliche is an effort by one dancer to swallow the world, by engaging with two other attempts to manifest the universe in a single setting: Gustav Mahler’s 8th symphony, which Mahler himself said is intended to contain everything; and daily newscasts, which choose to include certain stories and exclude others, to give the supposedly most complete picture possible of what is going on in the world. That is no more realistic than dancing by one’s self to Mahler, but David Bloom draws upon his experience as Musician, Dancer, and Jewish Mystic, and explores what, if any, generative power lives within the human body itself, in the face of an unprecedented daily confrontation with “everything”.
