Tabea Martin: FIELD
Hodworks: Conditions of Being a Mortal


Three bodies. One field. The 100 best love songs. They long for something to happen, for some explosion. They fight fiercely for love, for affection, for recognition. Startlingly athletic and dynamic, this trio is a battlefield. Limbs tangle like tentacles, as the dancers cling to and struggle with each other. But is it just a frenzy signifying nothing? The more they are together, the more they feel alone.

Conditions of Being a Mortal

Full of operatic melodrama, Conditions of Being a Mortal opens a window to the subconcious of four characters. It is a wildly physical work that explodes in a tangle of bodies and heightened emotions. Robust humour, splinters of sexuality, arias of impulsive gasps and full-blown shrieking arguments are rarely far away. Sensual, athletic movement abounds in a quartet that offers a colourful and raucous triumph over dull urban reality.
