Trästycket (The Wood Piece)
“Trästycket” is a project and performance that examines new fields within dance practice. The project deals with materiality in relation to artistic practice, focusing on time and form. Through a redistribution of objects and forms – such as to allow music instruments within the performance take on a new material shape, in the form of wooden costumes – the choreography becomes a place for redistribution of time. It’s about the possibility of the artistic practice to draw up new conditions of time, in other words, about to take the time you “do not have”.
