Meeting _____ is a dynamic dance and spoken-word performance that aims to deconstruct embodied hierarchies. In the performance the bodies of the audience are invited to imagine beings and places through their observations of sounds and movements.


Meeting _____ builds from the dynamic dialogue between a synthetic-hair body and a human-body. The main interest in this work is in the exchange between two bodies. They are working, on each other. This creates a vibrant and volatile dialogue - full of associations and points of resonance.
