Traces of my Mind

Dance performance ca. 10mn Den Bosch, 2018.
The performance consists of two parts. In the first, the Performer is on stage alongside two accessories: a roll of white paper taped on the ground and black soil or coal hold in her arms. An impulse in the space such as a voice, a movement, a color, or a smell, makes the Performer remember an image, which she tries to concentrate on, revealing details to herself, making her body move. An improvised choreography takes shape. While the Performer moves, the coal spreads out over the paper, like a diagram of the mind. When the experience dissipates, the Second part starts in which the Performer presents the paper to the audience who is allowed to put their traces on the paper.
