Traces of Tissues

A site-specific requiem for those living in the liminal space - a place in between. Interweaving costume design, somatic choreography and site, this performance honours the present plight of the refugee. ‘Traces of Tissues’ asks, how do we remember those who have no choice or place to go? Performers in costumes attached to sharp tall gray pillars in industrial-like surroundings appear as bodies exposed - unwoven from the inside out - revealing trails of inner tissues. The struggle of boundaries and borders within bodies, costume, and site, unite an aesthetic between the tragic and comic - offering transformation. An unexpected dance unfolds between fragility, power, and hope. Produced by BETWIXT - an international interdisciplinary collaborative duo between visual artist/costume designer Charlotte Østergaard (DK) and somatic dance/theatre artist Sally E. Dean (USA/UK). Together they aim to create a total work of art (Gesamtkunstwerk) where the costume, choreographic material, and site co-create each other.

Supported by the Danish Art Foundation, Nationalbankens Jubilæumsfond and Sally E Dean Performing Arts.
