INTER:VIEW

MULTI-GENRE AND MULTIGENERATION PERFORMANCE FOR THE DIRECTOR AND FOUR DANCERS

 

Gloria (21). Valery (36). Gregor (49). Olga (61). Representatives of four generations of dancers (with the help of the director) conduct a performative interview. Each of them experiences their own piece of “time,” but they all live in the present here, now, in the moment. They paint and create a moving (inter) journey of experiences, memories, dreams and fears. It seems as if the fragments of their lives are thickening the space and time unfolding backwards ... And as they unfold their past, a reversal occurs: INTER-VIEW * develops a new personality, with multiple identities, and when that latter finally notices the spectator, looks deep into his eyes, heart, bones and asks, "Who are you, my friend?"

 

* The word interview refers to a structured conversation where one participant asks questions and the other answers. Interviews can also be unstructured, voluntary, and open conversations without a pre-determined plan or pre-determined questions.
