The performance is presented at Bora Bora as part of a double bill together with the performance "As Heavy As It Goes". The ticket is valid for both performances (2 performances in 1 night for the price of 1 ticket).
PLEASE NOTE: "Materia" is a performance still in development and the first evening March 20th the audience is invited to a feedback session with the artist after his performance.
A choreography for several polystyrene shapes and one human
"Materia" aims to discover, explore and witness the aliveness of one material: polystyrene.
Object manipulation is taken from a different perspective, giving space to the objects themselves rather than the manipulator, and playing with the balance between these two subjects.
The piece tries not to force a narrative, but rather let the audience project their own narrative on the material on stage.
Within a set score, objects are free to perform and take initiatives.
The piece is presented as "in creation" and will have its official premiere at the end of 2019.
The performance is visiting Denmark as part of the Copenhagen Circus Arts Festival - CCAF, which is presented by one of Danish dance's most groundbreaking choreographers and performers Kitt Johnson X-Act.
