I Put A Spell On You is a performance about external inhibitions that juxtaposes the notion of one’s own self with totalitarian authority. Three individuals are stuck in a space where the presence of a highest observer is inevitable. Their fragile bodies have lost all notion of privacy and are in a constant state of self-discipline. Although they cannot have contact or say what they want, together they seek a solution to the situation.
Ehsan Hemat (Iran, 1980) started his career as an actor in Shiraz (Iran), but soon turned his attention to dance developments outside Iran. He performed in William Forsythe's Human Writes during the kunstenfestivaldesarts 2007 and since then he has been operating both in Belgium and in his homeland Iran. I Put A Spell On You is his first experience as a maker.
