The conceptual ecstasy of invisible time
Time is materialising through the dancers´ bodies although we are not able to clearly catch the moment when their energy becomes a visible metaphor for time. It recalls the timidity of plants hiding from us the very second they should burst into flower. By means of dance, the choreographer creates an optical illusion similar to those of the famous graphic artist Maurice Esche.
Six irregularly dispersed dancers start their long-term, imperceptible bouncing and shifting over the floor toward each other, away from each other. Guided by the power of attraction and laws of chance, they form variations, combinations, permutations, like in a malicious and wayward game of atoms. The minimalistic movement is extremely demanding, it takes huge discipline of both the dancers‘ bodies and faces; at the forefront are two girls with no-nonsense expressions on view. The repetition principle is a direct way to the state of ecstasy; ecstasy being an intense thunder-bold of Time.
