The Solo Series


This is the real thing is a performance where the body is at the center of the performance. A single dancer creates and deconstructs her environment, playing in the landscape of visual meanings and possible references. Her own body flickers and transforms, remaining in the process of continuous becoming. Various qualities, textures, fragments of emotions, associations, situations, intentions, characters, actions, become embodied, but none of them is fixed in the form of a visual object. The physical body functions rather as an infinite hypertext, referring the viewer to more and more new associations. The dialogue between the real body and its visual representations raises the question of what the body actually is, how we perceive it and to what extent we can consciously construct it.



Theme of piece is “symbolization of feelings.” Based on my experiences I
felt that human emotional expressions become poorer in the information
society. On internet we can have neutral face even if we are happy or sad
during a communication, or pretend another emotion which we don’t feel
in the present moment. But we send emoticons and symbols according to
our own feelings. While doing so, all the infinite expressions and emotion
of a human being become poorer and less complex.

Growing up we loose the ability to live in connection with our mind. We become increasingly
preoccupied by what is useful. The desire for power, control and perfection. Man becomes
comparable to a supernatural creature. Obsessed, this creature sucks the life out of those who dare to confront it. Dreams, simple pleasures and poetry are suffocated. The Hidden Garden is a
mysterious place where the real and the fantastic are intertwined. A choreography inspired by the
gothic novel, fantastic literature, and the modern customs today’s society.
