A site specific choreography for three dancers (a classically trained ballet dancer, a dancer with a folk dance background and a dancer trained with contemporary techniques) and a musician, to be performed in a roofed, open space, e.g. exhibition halls, lobbies. The audience follow the performers in the space at a proximity of their choice. The piece is adapted to the specific space and location. Mechanics of Distance focuses on positioning static and moving bodies, cramming matching and mismatched systems into it and examining the distance between bodies. The choreographer’s tool is to find the right gesture, the translation of abstraction to physical body.
