Dust does not help us to remember, it reminds us that we have already forgotten. The choreographic solo performance TIME DUST investigates the temporality of ruins and decay on the basis of dust. The dance of dust and mirror-fragments takes us into the fragile world of remnants and disturbs the dust which has settled on the memory of war and trauma. In search of a future, present and past are burst in the haunting sound space. The disturbing excess of dust cannot be grasped and destruction and decay will eventually gain the upper hand.
TIME DUST’s simple movement language captures a sense of ruination and memory beyond words and speaks to audiences in affective images. The interplay between mirror-suit, dust and light creates ephemeral sculptures in the air. The choreography and soundscape intertwine and merge into a visual sound-choreography: the performer creates sounds with movements on and across the stage element which are picked up by integrated mics and transformed into complex soundscapes to which the movements react in turn again.
