NIAGA DNA, or if you read upside down AGAIN AND, is
a 6.5 days collective jumping choreography for la place du village
"As a musician / question mark, day after day, during years, i was repeating again & niaga the same patterns, I was developing the key to open all doors simultaneously: falling / flying into the immense abyss of trance, mixed with power and ultra-concentration. It is what the people call sometimes Niagara."
K&A invite the ones who pass-by "La place du village", the meeting point of the city, to join a smiling collective effort. K&A developed for NIAGA DNA an application, that is using geolocation to immerse the architecture of the square into a jumping board game. The app. contains the DNA of the city, build on the story of 47 lives that crossed the square.
"As a body everyone is single, as a soul never." H. Hesse
The story, translated into binary code (chain of 0 & 1) is made to be able to be jumped: Right is 0 / Left is 1. In the performance, the public uses this app. to become the performer, and the viewer, and the scenography, and the past, and the present, and the future. At the end, each one becomes the guardian of a small part of NIAGA DNA’s collective memory, by getting the translation of the specific part that was jumped. K&A invite the whole city to connect to each other. In the border of dance, literature, technology, and endurance, remembering the magnet of the feet -that for centuries carry ancient rituals- NIAGA DNA expands its roots on the square to include all in one. Created for the city, in the city, by the citizens: AGAIN AND.
