“The Swiss choreographer Jasmine Morand conjures up extremely penetrating body images on the ceiling (...) A play with beauty in the classic sense of the word, the beauty of body and form (...) in which she immerses her audience in unusually slow and meditative pictorial worlds.”
Please note: choreographer Jasmine Morand will give a short post-performance talk on 28 January after the late performance of 20:30.
The Swiss choreographer Jasmine Morand has created a wonderful, hypnotic choreographic installation with MIRE, in which the spectator can choose how he or she experiences this experience. When standing, you can look through the gaps in the partition walls of the installation to see the naked bodies of the dancers fragmented and in close-up. Lying on the floor, through a gigantic mirror on the ceiling, you look at a living fresco of dancers, while your own mirror image is reflected behind the dancers, which further enhances the voyeuristic effect. Together, the twelve seemingly weightless dancers form an enchanting kaleidoscope, in which the naked, sublimated female and male bodies multiply infinitely. As a spectator, you can move freely during the performance and thus take a different standpoint each time.
