PAIRFORMINGPRINT THIS PAGE
The Swiss film maker Alain Tanner once said that there are two starting points to a story: a film discourse and a film-poem. Pairforming, a performance-poem? It is more a collection of videos, dances on the background, photographs, drawings and texts, then a performance. They are the result of a study inspired by the piano piece by John Cage Cheap Imitation from 1969. A track which is in turn inspired by Socrate, a symphonic drama composed by Erik Satie in 1917 based on three texts by Plato. Pairforming offers a dialogue between the different choreographic objects and media, between them and the audience, and finally with the space in which they are exposed.
The painting, "Portret van Vincent D." by Lucas Devriendt (2004-2009), was the inspiration for Performance of A Portrait. In it the painter and his model, the dancer Vincent Dunoyer, looked back on their collaboration. The painting and the performance have now resulted in Pairforming, a collection of videos, dances, photos and drawings. All these components enter into a dialogue with one another, with the audience and with the space in which they are presented.
