The moment she hovers over the ocean. (work in progress)

This very first moment of awareness that one feels just before an awakening, a revolution, or falling in love is what this performance will capture.

This work in process is a dance performance triggered by a moment of awareness that a fictitious character, Lenina, senses in chapter 6 of the dystopic novel “Brave New World” by Aldus Huxley . Lenina’s helicopter hovers over the dark ocean the moment she feels something uncomfortable, the moment her social conditioning is being challenged and so she begins to question reality…

On stage, several mini choreographies will be approaching the theme each through a different angle and style. An overall dramaturgy will be threading the whole piece in close collaboration with a contemporary comic artist.

Inspired by the book “The Social Construction of Reality” by Peter Berger and Thomas Luckmann, a parallel aim is to question the established ways of making choreography and research for new forms of movement and structures.

The wish is to expand this moment of awareness, to deconstruct our dystopian, established, physical, or digital realities…at least for a while.

“Did you ever feel, as though you had something inside you that was only waiting for you to give it a chance to come out? Some sort of extra power that you aren’t using—you know, like all the water that goes down the falls instead of through the turbines – “Brave New World”
