An intervention dance project for museums, galleries, theaters and public spaces—2016
The project focuses on the choreographer’s research about the physical and emotional limits of a solo performer. Here, the movement creates parallel conditions, evoking the constant transition between the sound and the visual environment. The body exists in space as a material, using different textures and dynamics; sometimes in harmony with the architecture and sometimes in contrast. The beholder exists equally in the space, having responsibility and an active relation with the details of the action. The movement is unilateral, with lack of response, starting from one point and heading to another, yet never reaching an end. The acceptance or rejection of this state of mind, together with the absence of message, equals incitement to madness.
