Techno Transa Body Beats on the CNDB stage
What is a trance?
How could we access a space where movements are self-generating and where the so-called ‚identity’ gets lost in the vast desert of the generic and the impersonal?
How could we become a collective organism, a permeable togetherness?
Is it possible for the Other and all that is around us to become a sentient extension of who we are?
How could we create a space of non-performativity? To being nothing.
What if we became the spaces in-between ourselves?
How could we transform the dance floor into a space that opens up infinite possibilities of becoming?
TechnoTransaBodyBeats(TTBB) searches for the ecstatic state of a body that has abandonded its individual identity, ideology and language, a body that has modified its culturally inscribed image, a body that dances through an immediate experience of the world around; a body that silently whitnesses the blurring of boundaries and differences.
TTBB unites different subjectivities within the collective rhythm, a rhythm that reverberates and gives shape to the practice of solidarity, all in a symbolic space-time conundrum that surpasses racial, social and ideological boarders.
TTBB is a choreographic research and exploration of the dancing culture from the clubbing and the electronic music festival scenes. TTBB brings the phenonemon of electronic music and its adjacent bodily practices in the conceptual theatrical space, using various resources and tools specific to contemporary dance.
TTBB addresses the techno dance as a practice of dissolution and dispersion, of non-representation, of empathy and de-subjectification. Through the left-right repetitive balancing, the techno trance reproduces the mechanics of salvation. Do the dance of the heart, of the torrace, of the legs, of the hands, and respond to the music freely, without any contemplation or respect.
