Frames (2019)

[ frames ] is a physical rehearsal on composition, the movement of bodies and space. The work plays with the oscillation between improvisation, set movement material and movement tasks. How to mold unformed masses of movement into clearly framed dances?

”In composing a dance piece I’m interested in the process of framing, in which proposals turn into decisions. Even though a piece wouldn’t intend to say anything about the world, these decisions still tell their part about those who made the decisions. For me, tracing the thought process of these framings is the meaning of my work both as maker and as spectator.” –Iiro Näkki
