SEAD Bodhi Project : ROUTES

Choreography by gn|mc Guy Nader and Maria Campos

ROUTES steers our attention to a journey of multiple paths inhabited by the complicity of six people that constantly defy gravity finding different strategies of cooperation that make the complex paths and situations achievable.
Through high precision partnering, dynamic constellations emphasizing a unique mass of bodies, GN|MC proposes a perceptual experience through persistence and perseverance, evoking an eternal present rooted in patterns of repetition and accumulation of oscillation creating complex mechanisms in space and time.

Collective Dope: BEAT ‘ I just wish to feel you ‘

Collective Dope
BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’

One of the most essential human connection is touching. Our life begins in the womb of our mother the most intimate place for a human being. After being born we are staying in close physical contact with our parents until the moment of separation. This caring through physical contact, feeling and touching has a enormous effect on our psychological and sociological skills.

For the millennial generation the physical encounters are becoming less and less regarding these essential forms of connections with others around us. In our accelerated world of new media, endless choices and possibilities we spend fewer time physically with our families and friends. When we swipe form left to right and communicate with many people simultaneously we barely notice the loss of real interactions. From a far distance we are followers, fans and voyeurs while reinventing ourselves as on-screen-superhuman. These new ways of connecting make us feel that we are deeply related with others, while we are missing real encounters, handshakes, hugs and movements that communicate our true feelings.

Jenna Jalonen aka triplejay and Jonas Garrido Verwerft, a contemporary dancer and a b-boy, are investigating together in this topic through a physical and emotional aspect of the ‘dead body’ -partnering quality. Constantly changing roles as the passive and active, manipulator and the manipulated, the two bodies barely disconnect from each others touch.
Reflecting to different human behaviours and position in relationships. By using their individual strong movement and dance backgrounds, the artists are creating physical, acrobatic yet very intimate duet that leaves freedom for the witness to have their own associations and stories.

The human voice, like physical contact, can express many forms of intimacy and intention; the two often act together where one can complement or contradict the other. The texture of the voice and the quality of the movement suggest what something means and how it is perceived.
At birth our voice already plays a crucial role. It is the primal form of self expression as we enter this world and the first important communication of one’s existence and state, not conscious but spontaneous.
For this reason, the human voice is taken as central part of the musical composition and performance which will be performed live by Adrian Newgent aka Modern Errors, together with the dance. Using technology designed for live musical performance, the voice (sound) is recorded, looped, layered and transformed as a reaction or intentional contradiction to the movement on stage and will form the base of the music. Nonetheless it is the raw organic quality and physical manifestation of the voice and movement which defines the auditory experience.
Next to the microphone used by the sound artist, there are microphones placed on stage with the dancers in order to capture the sound of their movement to be used with the composition. With other words: anything the dancers do has the potential to become part of the music as well.
