Sections from Indispensible Blue

By Bryana Fritz

[Curator’s Note: Bryana Fritz’s Indispensible Blue is an offline dance as well as a desktop poem. It can take the shape of a live performance as well as a video clip in an online gallery. These are three excerpts from a work that can take up to more than 40 minutes.]

After studying dance in Minneapolis and Essen, Bryana Fritz graduated at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels in 2014. She performed in the works of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Xavier le Roy, and many others. With Indispensible Blue and the various forms it takes, she continues to explore the uncanny valley between poetry and dance on the everyday user surfaces of OS X: Everything looks and sounds extra generic, but then the gloss of exactly that comes up, entangled in the glitch of the cursor movement.
