MOUSING | ON THE OTHER HAND (25 minutes)
Another story. Again, further on and from the other side. If I show what I have in one hand, what do you suppose I have in the other? On stage, a woman and all the women in the world.
On the Other Hand as reflection, rethinking and the chance of reaction, as a search for individuality and uniqueness but also for relation and dialogue with the chance of sharing. The body on stage outlines images by drawing space with the reaction of the reflex to the world’s conditioning. A woman’s story.
A story made of movement. A construction of images in movement, in continual transformation.
On the Other Hand came about after the creation of Mousing, a performance conceived for a Korean dancer interpreted by Jin Yeob Cha.
On the Other Hand is a consequence and an effect of Mousing yet it is also its re-thinking, reflection and reflex. It stands as a comparison and represents the possibility of dialogue ininterpreting and dancing the same choreographic intention.
