WHERE THE SUN SETS
dance performance for two dancers, 21 minutes, 2017
In twilights, dread sprouts out of the dusk.
The color is the place. Screen of light and warmth. Inside of it, natural powers and textures: light, temperatures, Subterranea.
The search after an origin to movement travels through words and climates and is a catalyzer for simultaneous action and repetition. A process of accumulation, different forms of intensiveness and a joint endeavor to refine movement in order to precise feelings. The desire to be in one thing gives birth to a uniform stubborn physicality. The cold movement coexists with the warmth of the struggling body and balances.
Where the Sun Sets is an ascetic quiet duet. From the gentle connection between visuality and
physicality a total-stage-world. The execution reflects the methodical work process, in which the physicality - made of rules, structure and order - is streaped, deconstructed and practiced in an extended research process.
The choreography is embedded deeply, the images and the performers’ execution blend into one.
