About the performance

Nastanak suvremenog plesa i njegovih ranih tehnika povijesno je vezan za teorije geste, prvenstveno iz utjecajnih učenja o tehnikama govorništva i retorici Francoisa Delsartea. S posebnim fokusom na njegovu pomnu analitiku prirodnosti i arificijelnosti u pokretu, prije svega u govorništvu, ali i glumi zabranjenu paralelnu gestu, u ovoj koreografskoj studiji BADco. zanima pomak plesa od retoričke geste u proceduralnu retoriku, odnos između “govora” i uvjeravanja u plesu te njegove temeljne oprečnosti spram prirodnosti koja je u plesu zamijenila ideologiju lakoće iz baleta.
Krenuvši od slike Beuysovog antologijskog performansa, promatraju kako ples izgleda ne iz perspektive gledatelja ili izvođača nego svih povučenih objekata čija “prirodna” mrtvost uvijek povlači tijelo iz svijeta živih u crnu kutiju nemrtvih.
