Rising forwards: A choreographic epigram
For choreography to be developed as progressive and relevant, it must be specific and act as a translation of both movement and touch, of time and space as conceived realities. Choreography as both action and thinking, develop over time through experience, study and the research that provides expertise needed for specificity. Choreographic practice unfolds in relation to other practices, in relation to traditions, conventions and to cultural attitudes towards both art and politics. In my choreographic work the attitude to the techniques of narration and to language are absolutely decisive. I explore and research this in dialogue with a rapidly changing surrounding world that constantly demands artistic and political positioning. I do, I explore, I evaluate, I discard and occasionally arrive at a good dialogue. I refuse to travel backwards, I like jumping, I fall often and mostly manage to rise with my eyes, my thoughts and my body turned forward. In my text I will elaborate on how.
