Info

 

We’ve made this dance for you to see it. As we make our rounds along the periphery of the space nothing is left untouched. The lights, our bodies, the sound, you, the objects, are all mutually affected. The Blanket Dance addresses a proliferating curiosity about touch, and about how form itself can be content. We see how the reach of touching produces a movement, and how this movement reveals unexpected affinities, images, and meanings. In The Blanket Dance touch behaves and misbehaves, in making sense and non-sense. We see how it animates the inanimate and turns the most concrete things into the softest of matters. (Frédéric Gies, Jefta Van Dinther, DD Dorvillier)
