kaleidoskop im nebel: on compressions & rarefactions

This is a work-in-progress performed on March 19, 2016, at the Zagreb Dance Center, as part of the conference Construction of Perspective: New Choreographic Practices, while working toward a concert ballet kaleidoskop im nebel. Departing from the stability-versus-porosity of the choreographic material, and developing along Kirchner’s music while structuring towards Globokar’s composition, it is focused on the study of movement and several choreographic thoughts and decisions developed in collaboration with the dancers. In the oscillatory choreographic wave, the music composition is a mediator, intercessor, and an agent of structure, while spatial resistances of the dance studio offer depth and memory to the process. The dance builds itself forward upon the music, fractures itself into its own specific architecture. Movements swell and are swept away, become visible or invisible, and are then assembled into structure. In this sense, this work can begin at any point and can end in any silence.
