THE H ALF by multiplying strategies of separation between the
traditionally fused mediums of a dance performance: music / movement /
stage / light, we are seeking to reach and demonstrate emergent forms
of interaction in constellation themselves beyond anybodies singular
Starting point of THE HALF is the shared conviction that the
politically incorrect gesture of HALVING - breaking away from the
socially privileged rhetoric of being whole (as individual) and
together (as a group) - is the only way to care about the identities
and communities that are to come.
In the making of four different dance solos we attempt to test this
philosophical conviction inside our artistic practice.
THE H ALF is a
modular project consisting of four different pieces made in several
progressive steps during a period of year and a half between 2009/10.
Respecting the fragmentary nature of its mode of production THE H ALF
could be perform as a “whole” of four dance pieces
or in all possible “individual” combinations (one,
two or three pieces).
