WONDER tries and makes visible the projection of the performer into potential bodies. Fantasy and memory play an active role in the choregraphy. The solo form is based on several dancing experiences that could be seen as several “visits” into foreign bodies: Dominique Mercy (dancer for Tanztheater Wuppertal), Shelley Duval (the leading actress in Shining by Kubrick), Tippi Hedren (the leading actress in The Birds by Hitchcock). These figures become medium of new reveries and vectors of movement.
