Of All Its Parts #3: Uninvoked Operas

June 28, 2019 | MARC – Milvus Artistic Research Center, Knislinge (SE)

The third episode looks specifically at the qualities that appear when multiple (performative) layers within a choreographic figure is active at the same time. The density and potential produced out of this activation of layers appears as an endless palette of unactualized openings, frictions and manifestations.. A fullness and an overflow of the possible brings two-women-machine-show to the cusp of the impossible: a dance of dances, a body of bodies. 

“Deep flow, streaming liquids. Dense legs. Tight muscles.

Flicking through pages allowing multiple manifestations.

It’s never enough. You are never done. There’s no end. A constant flow of elaborations.

Invoking dreams? Allowing subconscious to manifest in reality. Manifesting into concreteness.

Fluctuations – between worlds of imagination.” Dream script excerpt

Of All Its Parts is the title of a choreographic work that unfolds over the course of five episodes. Through each episode, the work dives deeper into the latent layers of human imagination—gathering a spectacular and genuinely diverse accumulation of dreams and vision-like materials. By applying these materials to a choreographic setting which focuses on layering and interweaving, a grandiose figure is gradually brought to life growing and complexifying through each episode.
