DIALOGUE WITH ONE’S SHADOW // Dance performance by Claire Vionnet and Christelle Becholey Besson
Thursday 25th at University of Aberdeen // Old Aberdeen campus // The old Anatomy Rooms at Marischal College

No contact. No-one around. Nobody to touch. No other hand to rely on. But still, these other presences… Dancing with materials, dancing with sound, a solo with one’s own shadows. In this 15 minutes video projection-performance, we are exploring the shadows of one’s body: the formal as well as the metaphorical ones. What kind of dialogue can be had with one’s own shadows? What can they say to the dancing subject? Dialogue with one’s shadows questions the essence of movement when it resonates with various materials and sounds. Which movements and which parts of the body silhouette are the most expressive? The dialogue leads the audience into a confusion between the virtual and the real world, and questions the diference of emotions produced by each dimension.
