One Double Body

Available for showing contact for details




This performance is part of the Causal Machine Family of Choreographies. All these choreographies are based on the research of inner forces within one's body. These forces are perceived as causality. Each person/performer has many different bodies, and these bodies are interrelated and influence each other all the time. Their mutual influence is most of the time mechanic. Causal Machine as a concept underlines those aspects of the bodies and tries to make them visible on the stage. One double body is based on the real-time rite de passage experience of a performer/woman: pregnancy, labour and becoming a mother. It works with the fragility of this moment in life as well as with the physicality through living it and observing it at the same time. I would like to make art by the way life is creating itself, again and again, never denying what it was, never knowing what will be, aware of what is now.
