A work constructed between the ballet’s bodily framework, an evasive and ambiguous subject, and a musical score that begins to alienate itself. Tentative and speculative proposals crashing various materials, and initiating a dialogue between the three.
In the piece, the ballet works both as a system of symbols, but also as a framework for new bodies. Instead of capturing the center of ballet, we try to find its external border and allow the work to facilitate for the viewer to ask: What and Where is the ballet? Where is the limit, and if not there, where is the shadow?
This is not another balett but rather a (de)-folding one. A body that operates all of its directions, planned and directed but without pre-determined representation. A return to the ballet where the paradoxical logic collapses. An after-political subject, which seems to stand for everything.
Our third option is not one or the other, but both!
A war for love, a loving war, a love for war, a waring love. A ring for love. lovar and wing, wloaevr.
