On The 1

Our piece entitled "On the 1" is a percussive dialogue in how our three vessels (the taps of Amanda Castro's Tap shoes, the nails of Arielle Rosales' Flamenco shoes, and the bells wrapped around the ankles of Brinda Guha's bare feet) tell our cultural histories through a rhythmic exchange. We explore the funk and syncopation of a 4-beat clave-inspired beat cycle, Flamenco's "Bulerias" (12-beat) cycle, and Kathak's "Teen-taal" (16-beat) cycle in this piece, figuratively and literally playing with the idea of starting and ending on beat one. "On the 1" pays homage to our rhythmic past, present and future honoring tradition and celebrating collaboration as three millennial women artist in New York City.
