Violence Lointaine

Dance - performance, 2014.

Violence Lointaine is a dance performance consisting of several audio-visual fragments that put together a postdramatical storyline. Recalling the personal violence experiences of the artists, reproducing the aesthetic of this violence, and deconstructing it. To push the reality behind the images “violently” to the fore and reflect how omnipresent violence is in our life. Tackling the question of when the seemingly fictional images of faraway violence turn into testimonials of harsh realities.
