  • About the performance
    • A two part choreographic project, which assembles in a single space—the stage—and in two moments as a conversation, two generations of dancers, in their fifties for, On the verge of oblivion, (a woman and a man) and in their thirties for where nothing of the heart vanished (three men, a woman). A common question, about memory. This project takes place in the present to explore and reconsider how history repeats itself and reveals the permanency of certain themes: work of art/spectator, artist/individual, ego/communication, interns settlement/dominant edifice, verticality/ horizontality, signs, feelings, collective fantasies, loneliness, community… How to reach an elsewhere, by which mobility are we called toward? How an organism can adapt to the disruptions, to the disproportionate affects when the events no longer exist, or cannot be welded together by memory?
