World premiere 11 June 2010, Festival Danse Balsa Marni, Bruxelles


First Part of the double Abdrücke/Abdrücke folgen

Abdrücke and Abdrücke folgen are two dance installations for one dancer. Two images that are like the same image’s positive and negative. In focus: a dancer looking for traces of her own being – which are constantly blurred. The body is the mooring rope to the self; a matter that can be measured, drawn, touched, described and displayed. And observed: the audience’s voyeuristic point of view in Abdrücke turns in Abdrücke folgen rather to dancer’s inside. In Abdrücke exists only the self. The “I” in hundredfold reflections, always reflected back on itself. Without hope of self-reassurance in the view of the other. Only the room exists – geometrical, hard, cold and bright, covered with mirrors and without any possibility to look outside. In this room the dancer tries to find, scrutinize and define herself. She turns, twists, as if every inch of her body should be cataloged. She documents her outlines on many slips of paper; these are portraits that she throws outside through narrow slits. Every piece of paper isan anchor of her existence. The spectators, however, are granted an unobstructed view, not only into the box because it is lit from the side of the spectators and thus transparent, but also because of a camera that projects images from the inside onto a wall. And while the breath of the dancer is fogging up the box and obfuscating the view, the camera’s larger-than-life image stays on.

Abdrücke is part of the double Abdrücke/Abdrücke folgen, as well as an independent work.
