Again? What now? is a work by Yvonne Rainer (US) created specifically for Weld Company in the fall of 2018 and mixes new ideas with recycled older material containing spoken text, music and movement material. We can call the piece ”Yvonne Rainers best bits”. The actual title can also be read as a scream of desperation and protest in response to the world’s anxious state, and more specifically the current catastrophic social and political situation in the United States.

In a career-long relationship with integrating and separating dance history’s influences and contemporary events, Rainer’s work – from dance to film and back to choreography – reflects these sometimes incompatible poles of aesthetic and social. Forever hopeful she starts again.
