    Close Encounters Vol.02, Dansehallerne c/o DEN FRIE, Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen

    2019

    The special feature of this space made for communication emphasized non-verbal communication and sensual encounters, and it was only in the installation itself that language and the associated patterns of action and movement came into play and choreographic elements and spontaneous moments of encounter with the audience overlap. The INTERCONNECTEDNESS is an important aspect of this work and gives every single person the same necessity of being. The SIMPLE BEING as a physical act, like talking, thinking, and resting is an important part of the performance, also the mental activity inscribes itself into the body. Simultaneously to all communicative encounters, the book “Breathing, Choas and Poetry” by Franco “Bifo” Berardi was read in silence. The imprints of touching are SCRIPT OF HUMAN COMMUNICATIVE MOVEMENTS for me. Like a kind of CELL STRUCTURE OF COMMUNICATION (verbal – non-verbal) the choreography spatially depicts communicative fields of action and reproduces forms from images of socially anchored movement sequences. The random and gentle touches of the piece of coal on the borders of the room are IMPRINTS of movements of encounter and expression of a spatially anchored action, a bodily image executed as ÉCRITURE CORPORELLE. Form, action, and the recording part became one and the sequences of the movement were congruent with the forming process. (Stella Geppert 2019/2020)
