A solo body, a singular body, with moss the multiple body speaking through it. A horizontal polyphony in the body with no center, just rhythms.
Choreographer Angela Vitovec aka Angela Schubot and dancer Suvi Kemppainen embrace an impossible challenge of a human tapping into the dance of moss. Where can the body take place if not in our human flesh and bones? On what plane is the bodily happening? This solo is a movement study emerging from a long-term, deep dedication to encounters with moss.
