A duet of song and dance,
Stillness and light,
Space revering form;
Another day’s night.
7°EAST GIVE AND/OR TAKE investigates synergies of movement, song and space in choreography of two performers and one sculpture. Seeing and blind.
It is knowing vulnerability and disowning beauty of human soul on a strive towards equilibrium.
There is submittal, inspiration and traces of rivalry on the way to experiencing unity of two poles by first appreciating one. Once I will be seeing the day by now embracing the night. Fully.
The sound of breath, movement of the diaphragm, is the beginning; an opening of the space for physical enquiry into new ways of healing, for song to evolve and to inspire dance, sound and presence shaping a sacred space, an interchanging play of sound and dance slowly allowing humour and strength to thrive, again.
The sculpture ‘4D Sphere’ transports the inter-dependence of form and (empty) space to encompass the performance and conclude it.
