EVERYTHING REMAINS, 2015
"Painting is trying to paint what you cannot paint and writing is writing what you cannot know before you have written: it is preknowing and not knowing, blindly, with words. It occurs at the point where blindness and light meet."
CONCEPT, CHOREOGRAPHY, SPACE AND LIGHT:
Juli Apponen & Jon R. Skulberg
Juli/Jon & Addis Prag
Astrid Hansen Holm
Nanna Møllegård Madsen
A specific body is at our disposal and this is where we depart from. Juli Apponens body has undergone a heavy transformation through several surgeries and numerous severe complications. We are not artificially creating exhaustion on stage, we already begin with a body in a state of tiredness. The physical memory and experience of this archive creates a source of material. A naked body is exhibited on a white floor in the dimensions of a sheet of paper on an empty black stage. With slow movements the body declares its space and tempo. Quietly insisting the audience is invited into the history of a body, a person and a human experience.
