Bodies and Structure
Arena / Rita McBride
The bodies encounter each other as well as the monumental, functional “Arena” sculpture created by American artist Rita McBride. So, for the first time, “Arena” transitions from a museum space into a stage space. Similarly, the choreography, incorporating ten exceptional dancers and their movement tracks, migrates from a flat surface area into the vertical dimension by using “Arena’s” enormous incline. An organism of bodies and structures emerges – indefatigable and fleeting, fragile and resilient. Moments of relationship and communication appear and dissolve again, become visible while others remain invisible.
