The choreographic research in the piece Entrelacs aims for a physical translation of human existential experiences through the mechanics of knitting. From one stitch to another, the body follows a meandering course created by the yarn, knitting and unraveling itself, making knots, tending and releasing.

Catharsis - Veronika Akopova

film 2016
  • director, choreographer, dancer
    VERONIKA AKOPOVA

After a “delicate at 37°C” wash, a new born body tangled in fresh clothes slides out of a washing machine. Oscillating between “pure” and “dirty”, the new being goes through human existential experiences, ending up with a cathartic jubilation of life.

Over the last few years the population of bees has declined considerably. No bees means no plants, no food, and therefore no humans. In order to save the planet the researchers have invented pollinator drones to replace the real bees. The creational function is until now inherently human. What is the place of the human being in a world where drones take responsibility for the primary process of creation?

What is a hazard? Is it nothing more than a sequence of causes and effects forming an infinitely complex algorithm? “Rand()”, which signifies a programming function that generates pseudo-random results, immerses the viewer in a game with unpredictable results.
