physical prospects

A landscape of bodies, moss, and concrete. Resting. It slowly starts to move: A cracking sound, as if the surface of a silent landscape suddenly breaks open, as a seething underneath seeks its paths. Cracks condense, deform the landscape, bring it to life - and eventually destroy it.


physical prospects lingers in the crumbling apart, in the decay: in the opening interstices, it traces the violence of the Anthropocene. Nourished by queer practices of witnessing and accompanying grieve, and rage, physical prospects searches for modes of resistance that incorporate porosity at its base. What does such resistance look like, how does it feel, how does it materializes?


physical prospects unfolds between bodies, moss and a vast concrete landscape. The choreography not only sets the bodies in motion but also the materials so that at times the whole landscape is in flux. At times the bodies detach from the landscape and are confronted with their vulnerability and rage. And yet the bodies remain part of the dynamic: under their hands, the landscape disintegrates or breaks under its weight. Nothing remains but to witness the landscape as it falls apart. The choreographic dialogue between body and landscape searches for possibilities to endure the vulnerability and the rage together and thus manifest a counter-design.
