SPLAYED MIND OUT

Autorenschaft
Beschreibung

Splayed mind Out. Meg Stuart and Gary Hill met in 1994 to discuss the possibilities of collaboration. Living on separate continents this was a long and fragment process until they began improvising a multitude of ideas they had accumulated over time. A decision early on not to split the creative process into choreography and video was crucial in breaking away from the norms of working in this situation and to crossover the boundaries of various fields togehter. Splayed Mind Out was developed during a three-week residency at the Kaaitheater in brussels, where it was shown as work-in-progress in April 1997. The collaboration continued over the summer and had ist premieres at documenta X (short version) and in Stockholm (long version). The most obvious meeting ground that brought Gary Hill and Meg Stuart together for this unique collaboration is the body. It is all the nagging questions which surround it concerning the outlines and borders with others; incopmlete gestures that suggest other sides of languages and movements; the body of image and the writing of of the body; the shared skin of different media (and the body); the utterances and happenstance between performer and audience. Splayed mind Out is a many-layered and fragment tale that unfolds without end as we exit one place for another (as we move from point A to point B trying to feel all of that which resides in between).
