How does sharing an experience affect the expenditure of energy involved? Fountain/To The Mountain is a choreographic investigation into the mechanics of communal effort. The first part, Jeremy Wade’s Fountain is a sensory preparation for the audience as well as an introduction to the choreographic techniques involved in making the second part. In To The Mountain Florentina Holzinger, Ligia Lewis and Rodrigo Sobarzo process a series of tasks, fantastic images and scores as they go on a physical journey. An abstract progression of energetic states and physical intensities, their bodies become motors that run on a multitude of images, virtual landscapes, affects and impulses. Their ever-changing configurations become planes of expression, a kinetic sculpture and scratched kaleidoscope of struggle and support.

Fountain/To The Mountain is the result of a longer process entitled »Identity and Transgression« in which Wade practiced an amalgam of curating, hosting, teaching and choreographing. In the course of the past 10 months, Wade engaged in a fundamental choreographic research in various constellations and different formats including workshops, a performance series and the creation of a new solo. Wade expanded his choreographic practice to group experiments and revisited somatic techniques such as »Ideokinesis« or »Authentic Movement« to work with the suggestiveness of images and language in movement exploration. In this process his research into the choreographic potential of the ecstatic body and its empathic perception became a broader quest for the creation of charged spaces and their transformative powers.
