Really beautiful the setting… the interface where everything connects and separates at the same time. Human forms blending into nature.
…there is something inside the curved movements, like a secret unfolding.
Your eyes can’t be bored as always there is a new thing coming in.
Multimedia, site specific, dance performance, incorporating video projection, sculptural forms and dance choreography, it creates intriguing layers of visual stimuli and challenges concepts of perceptions of reality.
Reflections explores continuity of events through separated spaces created by the video screens. The dance flows between the 2 sections of the space, appearing and disappearing from the viewer’s eye, or appearing again as shadow or reflection. The audience is invited to experience how they observe and make sense of what they see. The video, movement and sound integrate into an organic flow of form, rhythm, relationships and visual elegance.
Reflections take off the perspective of frontal view. The audience stand, sit or walk around the performance space and by that they each form their own experience of the work. The video projection activates the whole space and the audience experience the event from within the space rather than looking at it from a distance and from one frontal point of view.
Reflections encourages immersion in a magical world where the whole appears in its multiple layers and its 3 dimension and kinetic quality.
