About the performance
The performance was made as a consequent derivate of Blanca Arrieta’s pefrormance Realignments, but Vita Osojnik additionaly deepens the performance content into the expressionist lines of Egon Schiele’s sketches.
Blanca Arrieta grounded her project Realignments on the sketches of an expressionist painter Egon Schiele. That was the elementary idea, but her performance turned into the exploration of minimalistic gestures. Vita Osojnik who was an assistant choreographer to Arrieta’s project, now takes on the role of choreographer. The concept she developed thoughtfully studies the elementary Schiele idea as well as adding her own fresh premises.
The title of the performance is a word game that transforms Blanca’s project into Vita’s project. The renewal happens on the stage as well as behind it. Group of co-creators was reduced form original six to final four dancers. The music landscape is created specifically for detained bodies. The costume design recreates the presence of Egon Schiele’s characters. Their charmingly shabby outward appearance is even more emphasised with the subtle lighting. The light shows their gestures and highlights the space they move in.
The performance Temporarily detained bodies dives deep into melancholy and provocation. Both states are common features found in most of Egon Schiele’s sketches. The performance directs the attention also into the expressiveness of the space itself.
Playing with closeness, distance, accompaniment and occasional touches clearly reflect the current Covid-19 situation in our space.
