THE H ALF

THE H ALF (2010–)

–choreography, lighting–

In THE H ALF by multiplying strategies of separation between the traditionally fused mediums of a dance performance: music / movement / stage / light, we are seeking to reach and demonstrate emergent forms of interaction, in constellations themselves beyond anybody’s singular intention.

The starting point of THE H ALF is the shared conviction that the politically incorrect gesture of HALVING – breaking away from the socially privileged rhetoric of being whole (as individual) and together (as a group) – is the only way to care about the identities and communities that are to come.

In the making of four different dance solos we attempt to test this philosophical conviction inside our artistic practice.
