Waterkind

The work explores the interplay and connection between two bodies without direct physical contact. How can we experience the sensation of connection and the mutual understanding of the next movement through improvisation? Both proximity and space are equally essential, with an ongoing focus on vibrations and responsiveness. Individual explosions and outbursts occuring while both performers maintain a close relation to one another. The next movement is strongly dependent on the former. Water is the inspiration to form the flows and currents, combined with freestyle and elements of popping the result is a specific material contained in the work. Duration 30 min adaptable to site-specific venues, both indoor and outdoor.

[...it is contained in...]

[…it is contained in] is a tribute to water, our greatest life source. The duo is exploring the different qualities that water has and how it reminds us to stay connected to our natural surrounding and relearn some of our fundamental needs to become more human: Feel, adapt, remember, connect, communicate, be. The performance is an honest journey together through nothing and something, little and much, silence and harmonies, stillness and movement.

If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. Loren Eiseley
