MA in Choreography presents:
Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir’s “Blind Spotting – film version”
Tue September 12th at 5:30 p.m. @ TeaK, Aud 1.
Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir’s “Blind Spotting – film version” is part of “Blind Spotting Performance Series “. It is an artistic film created with Antoine Verbiése from the original stage performance.
With an ensemble of eight dancers Guðjónsdóttir steps into the blind spot of the exhausted common body in order to excavate its power from its alleged weakness. In arrestingly and at the same time unsettling pictures, Blind Spotting exposes the vulnerability of our fragile bodies in our achievement-oriented society. Red theater curtains which are usually associated with circus performances, opera and classical theater are here used to juxtapose portraits of anonymous but yet highly personal bodies, moving forward in an indefinable speed in time and space.
