premiere of dance performance- seeing comes before words. the child looks and recognizes before it can speak / anna steller, krzysztof leon dziemaszkiewicz, maciek salamon
Seeing establishes the perceived object. This object is a dancer. What feelings does the beholder experience when the object keeps changing its identity, shedding a predefined form to pursue constant transformation? What feelings do we experience on seeing a creative act happen live – and on seeing the same act on video? In this performance, dancers experiment with the very perception of a dancer, of their sex, image, way of moving and the border between a work of art and its documentation. In doing so, they influence the perception of the recipient.
Concept and execution: Anna Steller, Krzysztof “Leon” Dziemaszkiewicz, Maciek Salamon
