Inspired by an encounter with a person having a disorder of the nervous system – affecting the general muscle function of the body – dancers Igor Shyshko and Tale Dolven explore instability and limitation of movement.
They support, guide and take care of each other. Visual artist Katleen Vinck creates an intervention in space based on the idea of asymmetry. Simple objects function as an obstacle and as a framework for the movement of the dancers. The result is a physical performance with a whimsical movement language reminiscent of the characters of the Russian absurdist poet Daniil Kharms: somewhere between the possible and the impossible.
