With the performance Body Drift, choreographer Mami Kang intends to create a state of constant morphing. With dream-like fragments, voice, sound and movement, the work imagines dance as something that transcends human exceptionalism and brings an altered vibrancy.
An assembled figure encompasses a multilayered spiritual microcosm. It resists the economy that tries to reify the world and reduce the individual to a single and solid representation. Here, spatiotemporal reconfiguration does not seek linear progressions but rather attune to the emergence of forgotten, decaying and unknown corporeal sites.
By exploring subconscious desire, Body Drift invites the audience to participate in a cryptic, elusive, thus charged space where fiction and reality, imagination and materiality intersect.
Body Drift is a GREENHOUSE project, produced by Veem House for Performance in co-production with ICK Dans Amsterdam.
