BLUE (ribbon dance), 2017

Blue (Ribbon Dance)
Performance 30min, 2017

Blue (ribbon dance) is a monochromatic choreography – a choreography reduced to, produced by and related to one colour. Blue becomes here a primary quality of an embodied experience as well as a strategy for contemplation and poetic reflection – a reverie of love, grief and loss. Performer moves against a dense soundtrack, which comprises reflections on the history of the colour as well as personal narrative, letting the blue movement leak out from within his body.

Why blue? People ask me this question often. We don’t get to choose what or whom we love, I want to say. We just don’t get to choose.
