Double Portrait – unfolded version with Nir Vidan & Przemek Kaminski • Chamber Pieces #1

…focuses on the multi-layered physical materialities of the piece, reducing all further elements at play (lights, stage, sound) to its essences, in order to sharpen the reading of the energetic movement pathways and their transformations.

‘I call my pieces of small formats Chamber Pieces. It concerns those pieces – in analogy to Ingmar Bergmans films and to chamber music – that work with only one or few performers who interact within a small space. Bergman himself created a couple of films under the notion of Chamber Pieces. His aim was, to re-discover the essence of theatre whilst he was imitating the interaction or juxtaposition of music instruments within a chamber orchestra. Next to the musical analogies, it is also the reduction of space that defines the Chamber Pieces: The space around the body(ies) is worked as an amplifier of the visible (of the inner spaces), and the body-space relation is reduced to a minimum of surface. (Isabelle Schad)‘ Isabelle Schad

‘The bodies of two dancers with accentuated lanky limbs perform Double Portrait, a dance performance almost closer to a live visual mobile or bodily installation. It is a duet that is transformed into a solo by a mere physical approach, playing with the prolongation of the dancer’s body into the other. Such a newly-created figure, marked with their stitched and simultaneously extended bodies, recalls Schiele’s portraits.’ Maja Ležaić
