AbstractVisions is an artistic research based on the link between light, visual art and dance/movement. The concept of the research deals with the creation of an abstract, blurry and dreamy situation where a performing body can not be really identified clearly as that, but only as an aspect of itself: human, insect, animal, woman, man. A never-ending circle of transformations. A body changing constantly into different states.
Our first draft of AbstractVisions was the representation of a REM-situation when all of our daily desires, frustrations and feelings were channeled to come up. A body transforming into entities from our minds: creatures inhibiting in each of us. Sometimes these creatures stay for a while, sometimes they move fast into something new. In a society structured under productivity and permanent growth where affects seem to be misplaced, the dreams manifest sometimes as the only scape for our desires. Before falling asleep, we are vulnerable and true. Our double is set free.
Abstract Visions is a poetical and experimental performative project about questions dealing with daydreaming and the longing for a scape from daily routine. Our central question is: How real these abstract visions can be?
