New Unfinished Solo for Sneakers, a Past Tense and a Group of People

2015

The main objective of the project is to explore possibilities of working with various available archival materials and documents, gathered around the work of New York’s avant-garde artists in the 60s, who at that time formed the Judson Dance Theatre. The way to put in action and use the access to these archival materials and documents was a base to develop a movement practice, in which the body accumulates quotations, appropriates choreographic strategies, embodies practices, enacts and redoes. These individual materials transform independently of their nature and materiality into objects that are never fixed, but always in the state of becoming. Therefore, in a real-time, the memory is transformed into remembering, the passive storage of the mind turns into an active, selective act of recombination and constellation that manifests itself through movement.


The project is presented in the form of an ephemeral installation, where through a moving body and a two-channel soundscape, the history is being rewritten before the audience’s eyes. The spectators are understood here as potentially partaking in a performance of the archive, by setting their respective contextual meaning in relational motion.
