Six years ago, Wally Cardona & Jennifer Lacey began to invest in “unknowing” – distancing themselves from their own codes and beliefs, rooted in contemporary dance practice – working with non-dance experts (including an astrophysicist, sommelier, social activist, architect and medical supply salesman) to create TOOL IS LOOT, a work formed through aesthetic propositions that persisted because of their foreignness. Currently, they are continuing this discussing/doing/dancing – around context, meaning, value and need – with seven masters of various dance forms including Manadalay-style Burmese, French Baroque, Kutiyattam and Javanese refined.
