FORERUNNINGPRINT THIS PAGE
“Forerunning” is a concept that means to go before or indicate the coming of: ”the vast inquietude that foreruns the storm” (Oxford Dictionary).
I use the concept to explain the activation of the body that exists between movements. The state that occurs before the tangible movement.
This performance researches the movement between action and non-action and the physical state that it produces: readiness. A constant build-up of tension is created through a flow of precise small movements, leaving the audience in the actual state that is the key interest in this piece: the state of readiness.
Slow, precise movement language, presence and concentration create a densely focused space that activates the audience’s kinesthetic perception. The performance is structured as a long build-up with constant subtle changes in the movement material. The intensity is increasing; all movement in sound and dance is a consequence of what was before. The light disrupts and confuses the focus; the room is in constant motion and sharpens the audience’s attention.
