overview

“Reflection” is perception, observation, transformation and perspective. A group of performers negotiates the theatre as a space for social gathering, (re)presentation and an apparatus whose motors interact with the biomechanics and different energies of the human body’s movements.

The work invites into a hybrid zone made of sculptural figurations, chain reactions and mirrored realities, inanimate and alive bodies – resonating bodies made of many, that can break, fall apart and re-consolidate: A powerfully sensuous experience shifting between monstrosity and contemplation.

“Reflection” is the last part of a trilogy on the collective body. From the community that we form (“Collective Jumps”) to the analogy of nature (“Pieces and Elements”), “Reflection” brings the focus to energetic and physical forces that make us move and the importance of the singularity to move others: everyone can be the nucleus, the driving force, the seed, the sacrifice around which the group reverberates or responds upon.
