“In order to be strategic we have to know the game. We start to move and the music begins to play. When the wave hits you, each of you in your own account, it bounces back and at this very moment produces a new sound. We engage in a collective activity with personal intentions. No one in this room is responsible for anyone else, yet we can’t do it alone.”
“Splendour” is a choreography that focuses on the body’s relationship to sound and how illusions of different causalities are created through actions and reactions. Through dodging creativity it steers away from improvisation that promotes individual choices and self-expression. The performance rather aims for working with emotions and reactions that occurs at the instance the sound hits you, in order to express the illusion of bodies creating sound.
The techno suggests a dance where no one depends on anyone else to do it, but that insists on doing it together. Thus, the piece is carried by the imagination and conviction of both performers and audience.
