The One That Became This One
Is there such a thing as repetition, or is repetition always a representation of memory? Is similarity in properties enough to state identity between entities? Who has the power to decide what repetition or representation is?
In this research, we are interested in the relationship between the purely physical work when dealing with dance movement and a theoretical background with specific issues such as representation, change, repetition and identity. Do we define each movement separately, or in relation to other movements? Is it possible that the movement does not exist on its own, but only as I perceive it? We wish to create a dance performance where these two can benefit from one another. The dance should rest on a solid theoretical fundament, without being weighted by it. It’s still dance. Ish.
