To Dance A Prison

Video 13:00 min with sound, and photographies, 2010

The object of the choreographic piece To Dance A Prison is to transform emancipation, restriction and dominance into bodily positions. On the rural building site for a new state prison the artist conducts a series of impromptu and gawky dance movements, intended to physically interpret the concept of a prison as a building designed to restrict freedom. Done without permission from the current landowners she squats the farmers land, and transforms it into a place for intimacy and emotional rituals.
