Studios – Tanzquartier Wien
What are ways of distributing, or partitioning, or fragmenting presence when being together?
Insignificant Others (learning to look sideways) displays processes of the performers co-operating in modes of conducting, structuring and shifting a shared topography of physical presence and absence in fragmented cycles of movements.
The performers are as spectres and carriers of ambiguous images, still and fluctuating. A series of discontinuous but interconnected still postures that make images and situations between the performers but never quite build a shared narrative. Rather than a dramaturgy of determination, the artists are simultaneously working alone together as if in a field of energy that needs careful management, redistribution and direction, here they are making a dance out of the reabsorption of this energy field into the bodies of the empty space, themselves and the perception of audience. Harboured in that which is deemed unaffirmative pure potential is what is performed.
