Kinetic Orchestra: MOSTLY MASS
Mostly Mass is a corporeal poem – a performance that gives itself over to bodily instincts and wildness.
Mostly Mass is a rippling world of bodily joy, drift, and noise in which collective movement, touch, sweat and rhythm overcome the illusion of rationality and productivity. What if suddenly just dancing together made sense?
In Mostly Mass, we look at the body as a constantly reorganizing body of mass, organic and social, bursting with possibilities. Inspiration is found in the words of poet Tiina Lehikoinen: “We need to give up thinking of thinking, open our lungs towards the wonder of being here, the nectar of life.” Through sweat, repetition, fumbling, sensitivity, and harshness, we seek to find a way back to corporality.
Mostly Mass is a new dance work by Sanni Giordani and their working group for Kinetic Orchestra. The dancers of Kinetic Orchestra have worked together for a long time, researching partnering techniques, touch, and acrobatic movement.
