Contingencies

Contingencies explores differences. Differences each performer meets in unpredictable detours of habitual movement patterns as well as differences that appear within the group of performers. Herein lay the possibilities, potentials and hazards that contribute to the emergence of Contingencies as textures and processes of being together that are permanently renewed.

Contingencies explores differences. Differences each performer meets in unpredictable detours of habitual movement patterns as well as differences that appear within the group of performers. Herein lay the possibilities, potentials and hazards that contribute to the emergence of Contingencies as textures and processes of being together that are permanently renewed. Thus multi-layered and simultaneous timelines are being practiced and become perceivable as such. Light, music and architecture each intervene autonomously within the unfolding of the performance.

Following the series On Orientations, that investigated i.a. the relation between bodies and space, Contingencies reflects on architecture as performative element. Starting from a first version of the piece future architectures of the piece will emerge in different spaces as specific variations of Contingencies. As such the piece Contingencies maintains always difference in itself. The group, in being together, as well as the relation of the performers with the audience thus remains in constant negotiation.
