DUOS / COLLISIONS AND COMBUSTIONS consists of a choreographic and dance collection presented in museum spaces – an exhibition in which dancing bodies form the works.
The dancers work on dance material in the form of duets, creating choreographic objects, like moving sculptures, that can be viewed from different angles. The duets are seen as live art objects that create forms in motion and release energy. Each duet focuses on the encounter between two bodies,
-in the form of a collision between two different movement materials
-or in the form of “energetic combustion” between two bodies in one and the same movement material.
For the duration of the exhibition, the dancers’ bodies become ephemeral works that tell stories and convey sensations, questioning the relationship between bodies, matter, form and energy. Dance becomes a contemporary work of art, with contemporary bodies and presences, in resonance with our time.
