Library of gestures,
11. - 14. April

A large, 20-person movement choir, poetry, flute and percussion.

Library of gestures includes a movement choir of no less than 20 dancers, a flautist and a percussionist. There are three layers of sensory expression at work: a mathematically complex movement layer of gestures, live music and audible, written text. The text is written in an essayistic and poetic language, browsing through a historical context of gesture in literature and art, deviating into poetic and emotional shores of solitude, confusion, and success.

The concept behind the production is a multiplication of solitude. The 20 performers make patterns of rows on the stage, with each individual performs a rhythmic composition which creates unexpected connections between them, as well as between the movement, music and the audible lyrics. The audience is given a sensory experience which provide space for contemplative reflection.
