dance walk catwalk dance and walk
They fold fold walk unfold unfold and dance undone
It grows and goes grows and goes goes goes becomes
It drift and pin pin and drift re mix slash and
You feel and think resist and feel and think resist
You put it down you put it up forget it love it now
"Abstract Attractions" is a playful, shared ritual
displaying the (in)visible kinesthetic forces that
are (un)dressing two bodies in relation.
While traveling across a catwalk performers are
invoking those forces, carrying them toward and in
between the spectators as if they were in the middle
of a fashion show.
In a choreographic interplay of dance, light and
music the invoked forces take various fleeting and
fluttering forms, overspill the catwalk and vanish
into the space, transforming the theatrical context
from a fashion show into a ballroom and into a
jungle of many more intense sensations to be felt.
