DEVOURER (in progress)

2022

This contemporary dance solo playfully explores the figure of the clown with greed as its main subject. Can we better recognize One body, a bunch of black balls, a clear task and countless greed. A dance performance inspired by the principles of the clown figure and black hole theory. DEVOURER exists only to have. In a determined effort to take everything for its own, it absorbs light, inhales space and materializes time. Its transformation gradually manifests. A body of greed caught in action. How can the „self“ be maximized? Singularity. It’s an exceptional point. „I am a star, I shine like a supernova…or have I become a black hole?“
