About the show

Imagine it. A world where there is no distance between 'it' and our knowledge of 'it.' How, then, do we
speak of 'it'? We may be left entirely focused on tuning ourselves inward as one might tune an
instrument to achieve precision. First Things is a three-part work (and more). Each part embodies a
different minimalistic reading of the human experience in the world; Ranging from physical and
emotional dimensions to linguistic, visual and poetic aspects. Each part starts from a simple premise;
one body- one point in space, one body- one beat, one body- one word. Gradually, an accumulation
of tasks challenges the performer to hold on to the existing structure, eventually creating a fracture in
the fabric of the choreography and unraveling a new emotional and visceral horizon. Brick by brick, a
personal attempt to touch the humane - a foretold and visible trap.
