Blue (ribbon dance)

2017

Blue (ribbon dance) is a monochromatic choreography - a choreography reduced to, produced by and related to one colour. Blue becomes here a primary quality of an embodied experience as well as a strategy for contemplation and poetic reflection - a reverie of love, grief and loss. The performer moves against a dense soundtrack, which comprises reflections on the history of the colour as well as a personal narrative, letting the blue movement leak out from within his body.


"Why blue? People ask me this question often. We don’t get to choose what or whom we love, I want to say. We just don’t get to choose."

- Maggie Nelson, Bluets
