The framework of the "Mobile Piece" is text communication through mobile phones.
Another layer of communication arises during the dance performance itself.
Thus the dance performance becomes a collective process.
The participants got a sms with info and one instruction some days before the dance performance started. When they arrived at the set time and place they got the following first text:
"Hey Women, welcome to my "Mobile Piece". You have 10 min to send me scores via whatsapp that I will do now here on the platform. I will try to give my best to perform them so that you will have an extraordinary performance. The 10 minutes are starting NOW!“
I understand dance as communication and therefore also always as a social practice.
That is why I like to create concepts when the dance becomes more a place of encounter and negotiating between people.
I am interested in the following questions: What are we doing and sharing when I dance and/or perform?
Who has the responsibility for what? Who choreographs whom? Who brings something in?
What do you want to see or not to see?
What do I want to do or not to do? Who gives instructions to what should happen?
What if we disappoint our expectations of the dance? For whom am I dancing?
I am dancing out of line. And you?
