[DECOHERENCE]: What on earth could a choreographic replication of quantum entanglement be? In this dance composition, two men are literally – and metaphorically – interpreting the subconscious interactivity between everything and everyone on an atomic level. Movement is mostly pre-determined, but timing is improvised. Throughout this intensely physical piece, you see reoccurring motifs of synchronization, vibration and falling. The dancers wear heavy and loud work boots, evoking a weighted and rooted aesthetic in which nothing is decorative. The composer samples and mixes this onstage noise in real-time. BY THE SKIN OF YOUR TEETH: Inspired by the event horizons of black holes, this duet looks into the moment between death and survival. The work takes a poetic approach, transposing the celestial to the corporeal and tangible. Embodying both fragility and a combative physicality fuelled by adrenaline, bodies surge, orbit, rise and fall, push themselves to their limits.
