Choreographer(s): Katia-Marie Germain and Josh Martin
Leftovers (Josh Martin) began as an investigation surrounding an idea that the body holds a separate memory bank. Muscle tissue, bones, tendons and organs all storing their own accounts of past events, actions and trauma, with this collected information not readily shared or easily accessed by the mind.
In a breakfast table setting illuminated by a single light source, Habiter (K.M. Germain) explores the relationship between body and place, the resonance between bodies and objects.
Martin’s muscle isolation skills are amazing…(he) gives shape to the subconscious conflict between action and thought, and between past and present.

Nearly solely a series of still images…which speaks of memories and disappearance, of the transmission of delicateness and its individuality. The work is solid and coherent.
