WHAT I CARRY WITH ME – dance performance
Carry On is a performance in which eight experienced dance, theatre and music artists weave a performance from reflections on their personal past, memory, doubt and yearning. Even though the stories are personal and intimate, their threads link with each other and resonate into a communal experience.
These personal incidents, experiences and understandings are the basis for building relationships between the performers, in the desire to knead the intimate into the universal, the performative. The performance therefore draws content from personal impulses, stories and thoughts: What do I carry with me? What do I always have with me and what do I not have? Is what I am carrying heavy? Our everyday life is a constant struggle with gravity. Over time, is the force of gravity of the things we carry in backpacks, bags, memory greater? What we wear constantly shapes us. But what happens when we decide to share our weight, give it away, reveal it? The group divides and juxtaposes the expression into a broader frame, providing the individual with a new insight, a poetic accent, and perhaps more airiness regarding the seemingly insignificant, obscure, or burdensome stories. This makes them more bearable, the weight becomes lighter, and other spaces of conception through which we move open up.
