MIRAGE is a collaboration between the PST-Space of Contemporary Dance represented by Slovak choreographer Kat Rampackova and the Finnish dance company Kaaos Company. The dance performance piece is inspired by the artistic work of Catalan visual artist Joan Miró. Joan Miró + image = MIRAGE
“I am a straight rim and sharp corner. Endless. The color would be a light gray. I am inside a shape – encaptured. Float to the bottom. I would like to learn to dance freely and enjoy it. My vertical sides reach towards the skies and reach towards the earth. Formless shape, a shapeless form. It can be explored through the body. I am one part. Stretching and shrinking but unchanging. I am looking for others.” - (Performers)
What is it like to be a particular object? How is it to be captured inside the square shape? How do you embody a colour? Humans as objects, objects as humans. So far, and so close.
