In ‘We will be outside later’, the audience, a body and a mass of branches climb to breaking point. Draeger’s movements are created through the dialogue with the tree limbs; adapting and reacting to this unpredictable dynamic, forming a wooden sculpture in action. ‘We will be outside later’ depicts not just the literal collision between man and nature, but a complex, unfolding and futile body searching for equilibrium in splintered world and the epic that exists in a simple gesture. A contemporary dance solo that directly brings together nature and its conceptual , humanised form. You watch a singular figure playfully traverse stacks of wood; in an effort to find balance. What results is a place of retreat, where the unpredictable language of material leads itself to a constellation of images and shared experience.
