“Establishing their own chronology, two bodies set in binary opposition disrupt and transgress the laws of time. In this heterotopic landscape symbols and fictions of Western Culture succumb to the will of nature. Places, icons, systems of power and knowledge, and reflections of the contemporary status quo are violently invaded by external forces. Here stable structures deteriorate and parasitic elements take hold. The object decomposes and in order to evolve, adapts to survive. The body and its freedom of movement is in turn affected and changes. The autonomy of the body‘s rhythm and its verticality becomes platform of an emergent symbiosis and exchange.
Polyxeni and Sofia started working together last fall. This piece will be the first result of their collaboration. They investigate ways of collaborative authorship and they are focused on transmitting meaning through minimalistic choreographic compositions.“
