World Premiere in November 2012


a cyclical work

“Filter” is a cyclical work with many layers; layers that seem to rot from the inside out when they are combined. “Filter” uses dance, sound and live camera. A duo of two fused bodies and their shadows/offsets; two bodies stuck together like parasites without revealing which one of them is the one moving or leading, and what propels this heavy body mass in motion. I am interested in showing the movement and physicality of matter: the gurgling of the stomach, the nodes in the abdomen, the beating of the heart, the throbbing of the blood, the tension of the muscles, spasms… A continuous sound collage overlays the entire happening and fills the space. A whole collection of political speeches can be heard, which are interlaced, mixed, superimposed. Sound collage and dance enter into a dynamic relationship, or rather stand out against each other. Whenever the bodies are stuck, the voice push further, or the other way around; or everything quiets down for a brief moment. “Filter” is a cycle in which layer follows upon layer, again and again, with one layer overlaying the other or “undermining” it. A cycle that rots from the inside out and yet remains alive: while listening to the speeches, the projections already seem to make them fade away; while watching the body mass transform, a space opens in the back to reveal a “shadow presence.”
