CHOREOGRAPHY : ÉMILIA GIUDICELLI IN COLLABORATION WITH COMPOSER SAMUEL FRIED, AND ARTIST AYLA PIERROT ARENDT
8 hours of transition: rituals of time and space shifting reinvent the sharing of experience. Familiarities are repetitively merged with foreign routines. 3 memories overlay, contradict and complement the performers’ expansion into the space organism; there is joy for subtle changes transforming common ground. There is a need to keep track of time. 8-hour routine. 8-hour rest. 8-hour interaction. Dance shifts the way we memorize. 8 performers remember differently. In the intersection of the shared emotions and images, we address each other in search for a documentation of real time. Deceleration becomes essential in order to realize how these 8 hours are passing.
ROUTINE is based on research about the everyday life of the other conducted by the Zurich collective Fluoressenz. The artistic translation-routine will be articulated through dance, music, and projection.
Shifting of time and space. Eight hours time difference, eight hours with strangers in a room, eight hours to superimpose three memories. Eight performers animate the spatial organism. Changes will be recorded. Sound creates dance. Dance creates unusual routines. Bodies adjust. The familiar constantly changes. Floodwaves start rolling in, the northern wing shakes. The events make evident how everything is in a permanent state of interaction and communicative exchange.
