How can something so slippery as dance, that basically disappears the moment it is over, be preserved? How can something be shared that vanishes, and how can something vanished be passed on? Dance poses a problem to ways of recording and remembering, and perhaps also to what it means to make something. “Copernicus drifting” ventures into the shady terrain where looks deceive, words hide behind their meaning and dance turns on itself.
Four women are dancing together, evoking a space that is contemplating the notion of paradigm shift, an irreversible advancement within a discipline and the tension generated between new forms of knowledge and the necessary coming to an end of established world views. These overlapping ambiguities, drifting time and space and that what is left in the intervals of transmission, link to sensations of anxiety and grief paradoxically experienced as a doubling of a wishful anticipation of what has yet to come.
