The occasional tendency of seven to coalesce

BA Graduation Work, 2019

The show is truly the work of an ensemble. Creating connections being the main focus. Connections within one body, between bodies, to the music. Spatial connections and connections in time. Static and dynamic. The choreographic score is an improvisational one. None of the movement is set. Certain movement qualities and ways to relate to the other performers, the music and the space have been learned and developed in the creation process. The interactions are carried by an extreme state of sensitivity and concentration combined with creativity, musicality and physicality. This way of creating choreography is for the dancers a very challenging one. Not only are they responsible for inventing and performing their own material on stage but also for initiating and developing group structures. They have to adapt individual roles within a dynamic group constellation whose mechanics are constantly changing.
