Trigon

Marc Vanrunxt, Salva Sanchis, Georgia Vardarou

2012

Trigon is a triptych created around dancer/choreographer Georgia Vardarou. In December 2011 Georgia Vardarou showed the result of her residency in Stuk during Move Me under the title Hardcore Research on Dance. Both Salva Sanchis and Marc Vanrunxt respond now with a choreographic proposal to her solo. From an affinity for each other’s work came the idea to turn Hardcore Research on Dance into a triptych: three writings for one dancer, 3 x Georgia Vardarou.

Both choreographers have worked before with Georgia Vardarou in their pieces: Salva Sanchis now h e r e (2011), Objects in mirror are closer than they appear (2008), Marc Vanrunxt For Edward Krasinski (2010).

With Hardcore Research on Dance Georgia Vardarou looks for the physical body and tries to discover and understand the origin of her own dance. Why does her body select this particular movement and not another? Which role do cultural influences play in this selection? She unmasks her way of dancing like an anthropological research project. The content becomes clear through her choices, movements and presence.

Salva Sanchis will take the opportunity to set out some lines for his next group piece in 2013. Contrary to his recent work in which dance is seen as generator for itself, he will be looking for a way to introduce fiction and narrativity into dance.

Marc Vanrunxt’s answer will use the basic principle of letting go of formerly constructed forms and ideas into a non-structured space and time. Automatic. I am interested in getting to time in its unstructured existence. That is, I am interested in how this wild beast lives in the jungle, not in the zoo. I am interested in how time exists before we put our paws on it - our minds, our imaginations, into it. (Morton Feldman)
