Trailer (5 min 30) und Komplettaufzeichnung der Premierenvorstellung von BlackMirrorSolo in Düsseldorf 2008.
The new solo of Katja F.M. wolf vibrates in its form as performative installation with video projections between playful and magic moments.
The artist brings up for discussion the function of pictures on the basis her own image ' spatial images, body pictures, mirror images, reflecting pictures.
With the reduced means of a video projector and a mirror in a dark space the choreographer faces the challenges of the concentrated form of Solo: the meeting with oneself, with the own, the stranger and the other Egos.
The movement towards oneself becomes here the crossing into another, strange world of oscillating attraction. The body appears as landscape, which contains again the body.
The public watches the performer, as she watches herself, and becomes thereby even part of the unsteadily swaying interrelation of subject and object, put on here. Consolidating the simultanitaety of different points of view in the performance, unexpectedly a kind of publicly dreamed selfportrait unfolds. A piece of live-art produced by easy hand develops a persuasive suction.
The choreographer moves in a soundscape of the flemish composer Esther Venrooy, in which musical fields and spoken word interweave like architectural elements in a complex picture landscape which media artist Christian Hiller cares for.
Drafted directly after »View from nowhere« (premièred in March 2007 at FFT) in the context of the collaboration workshop m&de@dartington, BlackMirrorSolo originated in 2007 in connection with the series "Improbable Scenarios", in which the Wolf deals with the phenomena of perception and examines reciprocal effects of consciousness and movement for poetic and performative approaches.
Following the performances the artists give insights into the emergence and implications of this piece in a live-talk.
