First platform

47/49 Tanner Street | 13 November 2014

Choreography by Lucy Wild and Marah Wilson, Lizzie J Klotz, Konstantina Skalionta and Lucia Schweigert

The audience is invited to observe a ritual between two women who strive to reiterate connection to the Earth and connection between human beings. They arrest time and space to provoke us to remember what is simple, beautiful and primal about being human and being alive.

 

 

Beauty-fool by Konstantina Skalionta

Beauty-fool by Konstantina Skalionta

The more you go after ‘beauty’, the more it digs into your skin like a thorn. A thorn which stings you with the fear that the world cannot take the real ‘you’. One must be beautiful, but one only succeeds in being a ‘beauty-fool’ and you are only liberated when you realise the real beauty lies inside you…

“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.” Jean-Paul Sartre

We have expectations and hopes for our futures and we carry with us experiences and memories. Can you be free? explores how our present-day choices can let the unchangeable facts of our past influence our future in different ways. It’s an invitation to ponder on the relationship between our past, present and future.

A chaotic investigation of human interaction and conversation. What are our behavioural habits? Our social habits? A manic conversation of unrelated movements.
