The way/ you move (2006)

The relation to space and what space evokes are recurrent questions in my work. How do we behave and move inside of a certain environment, how does it produce us or how do we produce it? What are the actions taking place in space and what is the performative potential of the built environment? The movement of the audience and the way the space interacts, can be understood as choreographic material and choreographic proposals.

In The way/ you move I propose manipulations or adaptations of a space, in order to give attention to our movements in that particular space. This work does not take place on stage. It leaves the stage behind in order to meet up with its audience on the way to and from, seeping into the building and showing itself in a slightly different manner.
