In this project Kajsa Sandström wants to take a look at relational, social and cultural processes for the becoming of bodies and reflect this in the becoming that takes place between spectators and performers in the live-act. She wants to examine how physical images; photographs, mirror images, media images, and intangible images; collective seeing processes, projection and memory, relate to bodies becoming. It’s at the same time about the limits and the opportunities in the interaction between people and the fear that can occur in these processes. Kajsa Sandström wants to examine this by showing how relational, social and cultural processes of the body’s becoming are produced and reflected that with the becoming that takes place before the public gaze on a theatre stage.
As in earlier solo performances she has made, exploring different visual processes, this project investigates the visual processes that are activated in and constitute the living art form of dance and choreography. This time it is also about how immaterial visuality plays into the experience of movement, the unfolding of past and future into the present, and how time and visual processes together create the potential for becoming. The questions relates to her artistic research in the performances “In the Mirror, a solo choreography in the footsteps of Maya Deren” 2009, “I need a witness to perform” in 2008. The choreography will be a solo piece based on the study she will do during the creative process.
