TRIADIC / DISPLACED AND PERFORATED
Choreographic performance that probes the connective tissues of some of the body’s affective, physical, and social properties. Their proximities and distances are excavated through the unfolding of kinetic activity within a body that is already many. The performance space is an investigation chamber, taking the momentum of fluctuation as its locus. A single corporeal matter becomes a host for intensities that enable body matter to transform itself, to be both human and non-human, animal and machine. The starting point was the writings of Oskar Schlemmer and his score for The Triadic Ballet. These encompass his futurity project; studies on how to stage the human of the future. What seems to be an overarching and most prevalent idea is the exhortation of the power of bodies to transform themselves. Connecting bodies from the past with bodies of the future, different ghostly corporealities are fused together, from archi-fossil worlds to minds without objects. This capacity for transformation, fuelled by empathy and affect, creates a site where the physical meets the social, a point of convergence whereby social dances and rituals take place. Here, the body is a vessel of changes.
