Event Description

Exploring the relationship between dance and sculpture, Nerves Like Nylon (NLN) is based on the principle that a choreographic construction can trigger movement when it contains a certain degree of stillness.
Based on the sculptural paradoxes mentioned by Antony Gormley
‘stillness can express its opposite’
‘movement is best encouraged by a static object’,
my intention is to establish a choreographic paradox : NLN's stage scenery and choreographic construction, rather then evoking movement suggest, instead, its impossibility.
Emphasized by the light design, NLN sets off from a formal construction: choreographic motion is centred on the thorax and abdomen of three female dancers; the choreographic space is limited to a restricted area of action.
Partly inspired in Samuel Beckett’s text ‘Not I’, NLN is methodical, almost threatening “…imagine….imagine ...what position she was in...”
