Träda Trassla Tråda…
Can we feel pity for a tangled thread? Can we sense the wing beats of the silk butterfly through the fabric’s billowing movements? Can we hear the forest talk through twined paper?
Träda Trassla Tråda… is an interactive performance in the borderlands between dance and art installation. As part of the audience, you are invited into a space built from paper, fabric, and threads. Using sensuous, sounding, and playful methods, the dancers activate and transform this world. A dancing play with the materials occur where threads are tangled into life, fabric billow into bloom and paper rustles into tunnels through the room. The material regains life, and their seething natural states gradually takes over the space. When the performance draws to a close, the space has been completely changed.
The performance welcomes audiences of all kinds. As a visitor you can choose to stand, sit, or lie down. Just look, just listen, perhaps touch a bit and, if you want to, interact with the performance.
Träda Trassla Tråda… is part of Step Extended.
