Performance on Friday January 28 at 20.00 hrs and Sunday January 30th at 16 hrs
In Gravity, one mechanism is driven to its ultimate consequence, resulting in a landscape of falling objects: a ‘concert’ with 4 performers, a grand piano and many, many objects. This performance is an attempt to experience nature without inviting the ghost of lost innocence, to see the politics of gravitational laws in different planes, in different moments of history, in different constellations.
Concept / development / performance: Sarah van Lamsweerde, Norberto Llopis Segarra and Kaisu Koski in collaboration with Mari Matre Larsen and Michiel Reynaert
"I was wondering what it meant to drop a chair, and as i couldn’t solve the enigma I decided to take two chairs and drop one over the other, I did it once and I had to admit that it was intense, there was something that I couldn’t identify, was intense but I couldn’t still draw any concept from it, or delineate any profle, although I couldn’t say that it was something I did not feel concerned by."
On Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th we will be working in P////AKT from 17.00-19.00. You are very welcome to pass by. If you want, you can bring an object that you would like to see falling.You can walk into our space and drop it yourself or give it to us with an instruction and we will drop it for you, at some point.
We look forward to seeing you then or during one of the performances.
Gravity is a coproduction of Theater Zeebelt, Plateaux Frankfurt and Stichting Tre Tigri. The first sketches for the work were developed during the Dasarts-program “the Political Body”.
