Reframe the Framework DDD

Reframe the Framework DDD is a multi-faceted dance piece choreographed by Yasuko Yokoshi that aimed to recontextualize a post-modern 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 film, theater, and dance, hence the title’s DDD: dance-docu-drama. Yokoshi included high school students from Vermont as performers, investigating generational differences, and they were integral to the piece’s reinvention. Valda Setterfield, from the original cast of David Gordon’s work, performed her solo in front of a video of her 1984 performance.
