B sides, a performance project of the Movement Party, seeks both to hide what is obvious and to render visible what is hidden. As a playlist of alternatives, it is a series of performances in which each dance is impossible without the participation of the audience. B-sides draws inspiration from the concept of the b-side, or the flipside, paradoxically defined as both the “less important side of a record”, the “second half” or a “way to add value” to a pop single. This moving installation serves as an open invitation to experience the b-sides of each song (and of many other things) and to join the Movement Party in its quest for kinesthetic experiences of daily realities.
B Sides has been performed in different formats at NADA Hudson, Movement Research @ Judson Church, Dixon Place Under Exposed, New York University, The Hemispheric Institute’s 8th Encuentro in São Paulo, Brazil, and at Anne Zuerner’s RoofShow in Bushwick.
