SWING is an installation-performance for body, voice and light. I have reduced the space to a small surface, with new rules for the body, the rules of hanging and balancing. In this experience, I put and provoked my body to an unexpected situation: to play and to explore the new conditions of gravity, weight and contact with the ground and I hope to "see" during the working process the "new" poetic or dramatic meanings which appear in this new context. The meanings can reveal themselves with intensity, both on the level of visual and sound images and on an emphatic level, through the transfer of sensation or body experience. This is an apparently technical working method which I created while working at QUARTET FOR A MICROPHONE in 2008.


Next to the "one set - one situation", another principle of this working method was to treat the sound as a moving body. In SWING, Irina Wintze leads the words, the live voice, like an independent body which collides with the dancing body. The dance-body and the voice-body gather and filter, like a fine guidance for the audience, the images, the sensations and the unsuspected expressions of the balancing, suspension, fear of falling, speed, the illusion of flying...
