devised performance/Özlem Alkis in Maayan Danoch
About the performance
we began walking THERE we have been is a performance for two performers and flashlights, which are operated by the two. It includes no other light source and from this perspective is literally a dark performance and includes moments of complete darkness.
The choreography is made of simple actions, focused on the interaction of light with body image/movement. As the performers simultaneously are operators and actors, so is the light. At times, its movement becomes the main player, so it’s perceived as an entity, a body. Other times, it illuminates another body or location.
we began walking THERE we have been is composed through a mirroring logic, meaning each action aims to reflect something of the previous one. The result is a detailed performance, in which each step, location and action are precisely measured and contributing to the overall visual, musical and sometimes magical experience.
