Liisa Pentti +Co: Cloudbody – an ecology of dreams #1
Cloudbody – an ecology of dreams #1 is Liisa Pentti’s new solo performance that premieres 20.9.19 at Viirus Theatre, Helsinki.
”What we perceive is never a subject or an object but an ecology. Always more than an individual.”
What kind of memories arise in different phases of our lives? How do we merge with those memories and how do the memories become a part of our selfhood, a part that we carry with us that is unconscious and often mute. What kind of bodily metamorphoses are created by stepping into the image of our memory?
Cloudbody – an ecology of dreams #1 is Liisa Pentti’s new solo work that premieres 20.9.19 at Viirus Theatre, Helsinki. The work is a continuation of Liisa Pentti +Co’s duet The Body (2017) that explores meanings of the body, the complexity of giving meaning and bodily transformations. Cloudbody – an ecology of dreams #1 is the first part of Cloudbody performance series where Liisa Pentti continues the dialogue and physical practice taking place in the space between the poetic body and the viewer.
The work is inspired by Max Richter’s album Memoryhouse as well as new materialism as a philosophical study. The room-like space creates a setting for a dance in which the different layers of memory, movement impulses and stories form an ecology of dreams.
