“Spotted” is a grimace of discontinuity; a glimpse of perfect individuality; a perversion where the achievers are in a state of spiritual absence; an investigation of animated objects unable to overcome their singular being; this separation or this very drive – the constituent execution or exhaustion.
The duet performance “Spotted” is born out of the performance “Blind Spotting”, a performance with an original cast of 8 dancers which premiered at the Sophiensaile theater in Berlin in june 2014.
The “Blind Spotting Performance Seri“ includes at this point; “Blind Spotting”, “Blind Spotting- film version” a film by Antoine Verbièse, the duet performance “Spotted”, and the solo performance “In the Blind Spot” (due to premiere in 2015).
