Production Details / Press Releases

Solo for Claudia and Josephine / Bodies of Light is a continuation of the portrait work Solo for Lea (2016). Based on the same score, the new work plays with reflection by transcribing the solo onto two persons who shadow, mirror, hide one another, who amplify one another’s contours, rhythms, colours and personal energies. Claudia Tomasi and Josephine Findeisen both worked on their own interpretation of the solo before coming together now to dance it at the same time, melting materials and highlighting each other’s specificities.
The work also looks at how we mirror one another’s realities and how our energies can be considered to be made of light. Its reflection on the skin of the bodies (of light) is only one of many meanings that can emerge, on literal and metaphorical levels.
The core of the work unfolds between visual art and dance, between performance and installation, between sensual experience and abstraction – and plays with formal aspects of cubism and Picasso’s drawings in one dash. Together we engage in constellations of forming and disfiguring, in which the body itself becomes the stage: the space, place and matter that is under observation.
