This performance is premised in attraction. In a space that is highly organized and mapped by measurements, we find ourselves choreographed into function revealing the space’s demands. We move to satisfy the grid. We arrive to movement that imposes calculation, repetition and structure, only to unravel its impositions to find beauty in form. Our grid becomes a field of potentiality. Our bodies begin to question how the lines dictating them can become lines of intensity, that could in return romanticize the space into a landscape of collapse.
