Reframe the Framework DDD

 

Reframe the Framework DDD was a multi-faceted dance piece choreographed by Yasuko Yokoshi that aimed to recontextualize a postmodern dance in a contemporary setting. Inspired by David Gordon’s 1984 work Framework, Yokoshi explored the process of creative development, revisionist history, and the importance of context in art. The work combined dance, film, and theater, hence the title’s DDD: dance-docu-drama. Investigating generational difference, Yokoshi included high school students from Vermont as performers. Valda Setterfield, from the original cast of David Gordon’s work, performed her solo in front of a video of her 1984 performance.
