Production Details / Press Releases
The Event Horizon of a Black Hole defines an imaginary surface of time and space that separates the points from which signals can still escape, from those where it is no longer possible.
Von is set in this imaginary border where what is clear and legible encounters what is dark and mysterious.
Natural forces, physical forces and political forces, transform, distort and move the body of the performer.
A reflection on dance meant as a continuous mutation and transformation. The performance is conceived as a choreography of the three elements of movement, light and sound.
This Solo is originally set at the end of a larger show with two other performers on stage- it is performed both separately and within the context of the entire piece.
