About the Grant

$10,000 to support We Never Like Talking About The End (MAP 2005), a dance-theater investigation into the current state of the human spirit within the turbulence of the 21st century.

About the Project

33 Fainting Spells’ seventh evening-length piece and Dayna Hanson’s first
solo project, We Never Like Talking About The End ties together various autobiographical threads, including Hanson’s purchase and conversion of a 1980 Mercedes to run on vegetable oil. A deeply personal work, We Never Like Talking About The End reflects her belief that a stronger connection to one’s own soul will have a positive impact on everyday life.

We Never Like Talking About The End is meant to be an evolving work which reflects Hanson’s ongoing development as an artist and an individual. Hanson’s current work on a feature-length screenplay figures prominently in We Never Like Talking About The End, as does her interest in re-enacting and adapting material from John Cassavetes films.

Also integrating dance video and documentary footage from her life, Hanson modifies the form of dance theater to pose unlikely questions about humanity at the turn of the 21st century.

We Never Like Talking About The End features original music by Dayna Hanson and a full video score by Linas Phillips, who collaborated and performed with 33 Fainting Spells on their sixth evening-length work, Our Little Sunbeam.
