To live in the gap between the moment that is expiring and the one that is arising
Luminous and empty
The real city
Falling through your mind in glittering pieces.
And when you close your eyes, what do you see?
This is a showing of movement research which grew out of an interest in and focus on the notion of silence in the cacophonous city. We began the process by immersion in silence, asking ourselves if and how we were urged to move in this context. Springing from this, the movement of our performance negotiates the spaces and tensions between silence, waiting, movement, and inertia. As a shared referenced point, the city of Berlin helps us to draw together experiences and images, even those which are cliche. We dance out our notions of everyday life in Berlin, reenacting public space within the interiority of the studio. Looks are ignored, problems avoided, and yet interaction and the creation of something shared persists. Together, we move through darkness, distraction, passivity, and activity -- a sense of existing in a place in which one is permanently lost and yet is full of surprise and connection. Choreography developed in autumn 2016 by Johanne Castillo Bro with the participants of the "Dancing Choreography"-class.
