Veli Lehtovaara - Clandestine sites: Displaced

Showing Friday 11 September
16.00@Kunstenwerkplaats Pianofabriek

Dear reader,

Clandestine sites: Displaced is a choreographic work constructed of four solo performances. Each part addresses the spectator with different means and in specific relation to language and choreography. The first is for an absent performer, second for a trubadour, third for a dancer and fourth for music.
The primary text of the creation is Roland Barthes A Lover’s Discourse – Fragments (1977), and additional references such as Orlando by Virginia Woolf (1927) and The Pleasure of The Text also by Barthes.
The work approaches the performance as a love relation, between an audience, the performer and the materials of the performance. 
Each solo insists and negotiates differently on the same questions: what if, performance is considered as an amorous relation? What it means to read a book as a dance or to write choreography as text? What are the possible cuts and folds between a book and a performance? How could the performance itself become a loving subject?
