VIRGINIA a d a n c e p e r f o r m a n c e
VIRGINIA is an asynchronous play between dance, video and music that lures the viewer into a realm where nothing is quite what it seems.
A contemporary dance solo, presents a reduced palette of exquisitely simple actions. The performer stands up, waits, gets distracted, concentrates her attention on minute movements. At a high speed, she falls, rolls, recovers her balance, and grips the white bench firmly with one hand. A game slowly unfolds where the viewer’s moment-to-moment perception is purposely destabilised to keep him/her engaged with the question ‘what has just happened?’.
VIRGINIA tempts the viewer into a hypnotic world where the constant flux of his/her perception is the dance.
