KAMPPRINT THIS PAGE
Kamp is a dance production mixed with the scenographic research of “moving lights”.
Kamp reflects on the state of a human who is imprissionated in a North-Korean working camp for 3 generations. In these camps torture, hunger and executions are daily experiences. Without working in a linear way we will try to put these experiences in movement. Without defining the emotion or the theme we will use notations as: "you're doing a slow pas de deux while there are worms in your left shoulder, your head is a water filled balloon and under your feet are thousands of eyes. These notations and focus will lead throughout repetition into a metamorphose, although the dancer wants to get lost in this character it is only allowed to explore it within the form of a classical ballet choreography. With this duality the otherwise perfect stylized ballet is filled with raw emotions, detail movements and exhaustion. A grotesque pas de deux that suddenly arises or a grand jeté that is colored by the metamorphosis of a melting body.
Simultaneously the concept of “moving lights” will be further explored and developed. Using camera equipment, video-cranes, towers, dolly’ and steady-cams to detach lights on. This will change the audiences perspective throughout the piece and will give a video-like scenographic impression.
