Some Other Things

2014

In May 1961, American choreographer Simone Forti presented Five Dance Constructions and Some Other Things. An audience gathered in Yoko Ono’s famous loft on Chambers Street, New York, witnessed a kind of movement installation in which dance exists in a space above conventional stage-audience division, the way object exists in an art gallery space.


Przemek Kamiński appropriates Forti’s idea, recycles and reinterprets the original choreographic material. He creates his own “dance constructions”, focusing on the materiality of action, rather than potential narrative associations. Performer and simple objects occupy together with the same space and engage in similar kinds of movements: waving, sliding, rolling, squeezing, crushing, dropping, hanging.
