If you ask a plastic sugeon, an orthopedic surgeon, or a neuro surgeon, you will get three good answers. Among these answers: A human is a biological phenomenon. The dancing body is also a biological entity, with articulated intentions, in relation to time and space. If we keep on asking about the body/human while traveling inwards to the single cell or outwards to more grand formations, the question immediately becomes more complex.
The body is human: a sophisticated collection of communicative internal organs that support us. Surrounded by skin, our cover. And this complex structure holds it all: intellect, synapses, blood, intonation, ego.
My choreographic work is regulated by the ties between human bodies, time and spatial contexts.
In this work, STITCH, the dancing body is connected and inspired by a pragmatic science: surgery.
