Curatorial Statement: A fallow field is one that is plowed - it is prepared but then left open. fallow time is a festival that invites emptiness or the unanticipated. The festival is prepared space and time for open action, or inaction, to take place. It creates a platform for participation, intergenerational meetings and intersectionality to support all bodies in their creative potential. We are providing time for concrete and insubstantial ideas to be tested, to take hold and grow...or fail. fallow time is a time of rest, where unexpected actions and materials make contact and allow for new forms and systems to flourish: a chance for us to be together that is not dictated by any need to produce. The festival examines both urban ecologies and artistic production in our society. Inviting the multiple meanings of sustainability to rub against a range of creative practices, we will enact scenarios for thriving in our increasingly unpredictable environment. fallow time allows us to ground ourselves and to recuperate the values that are so central to dance: the values of the body to listen, feed, touch, see, taste, deliver, heal, digest, produce, die.
