#Whitenoise, Dalton Alexander

What the fuck is all this information doing to us?

#Whitenosie uses task-based improvisation, subtly promiscuous dancing, and cathartically slow movement to explore information’s effect on my human body. Taking from US-centric media – mainstream & social, and various modes of dispersal – it references the ongoing threat between Trump and N. Korea; longs for a past that was before my time as if something “great” in the US already existed; climaxes with disturbing patriotism; and ends in a visual installation that comments on capitalism, materialism, and how we humans are held suspended by these systems.

Dalton Alexander’s art “holds a mirror to help decipher complicated reactions and has the power to convert those reactions into action.”

Dalton Alexander. Movement artist. Activist. Being. Dalton creates contemporary dance performance work from an experiential practice, improvising to find subtlety and nuance and then embodying that with social concepts and mixing in sounds from everyday life. His training began at the University of New Mexico, continued in Tanzfabrik-Berlin, and landed in London at Laban where he performed works by Theo Clinkard, Ederson Ederson Rodrigues Xavier, and Dog Kennel Hill Project. Dalton has worked for punkkiCo and FACT/SF and currently dances with Margaret Jenkins Dance Company in San Francisco, CA.
