The Answer’s in the Eye (2019)

The choreography is based on the theme of divorce. Each performer is three different characters (mother, son and father)at the same time. The main focus is the body in its totality, the details emphasised by certain states, as well as physical tension and intention. The emphasis goes on painful transformations from character to character, on the struggle that family separation is generating. The end result can squeeze the audience guts making them laugh at the same time. It can be a silly representation of pain, it is subtle suffering with no drama. The dusty memories of a life together are slowly transforming the space into an unrecognisable, ambiguous vacuum.
