About the show:
My body is not owned by me.
If I am not the owner, that means that I am sharing it with some other instance, that some other instances too claim and execute the right to use my body: to navigate it, to count on it, to take my body into the responsibility. Choreographic practice then would be the place to zoom into this consideration: of reclaiming the body for limited space-time frame in order to own it fully again. And, also to encounter other bodies in this  frame which are also temporarily reclaimed, so that (though still burdened by our social codes) we can eventually establish some other form of transfer to each other, some other quality of humanoid consideration, some other common ground, instead of one that is repressively inscribed in the outer world.
