” We meet each other on the verge of reality, somewhere on the street or at the end of the party. The different meetings are like resets, attempts to conncet with each other. Our bodies, so as our characters, relate in different ways. Each of these attempts takes a new form, a different expressivity. How do we experience an ambivalent look or an off-putting celebration of feathers and who are we for each other in this inconsistent reality? ”

Presentation residency research
Saturday 19 July at 17:00

On February 2018 we, Keren and Eliott, started working on the Duet ”And all that Pop” in Riksteatern Stockholm (SE). During the residency at CLOUD/Danslab we will keep developing our work.

We are interested in the coexistence of seriousness and humor as well as oddness and normality. We found that humor is a key to communicate and allow the audience to access our world. Playing with physical and theatrical intentions (‘states’) and shifting/ transforming between them we will be exploring different ways of communication. We will research the ambivalence that lies in communication using voice, body and intentions in contradictory ways. How a subtle smile or a distant look can change our reaction and the way the action will be perceived.

Twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday between 9:00 – 11:30 we invite you to join our warm up! We will be sharing some ideas and exercises which we use for our research. We will explore the body as a medium of communication through use of voice, ‘states’, imagination and ‘theatrical’ elements. Using these elements, we will research the themes of humor, sense-making, absurdity and narrative.
