In my Bachelor Project as well as in my Thesis I have dealt with the topic of space. Space is a complex subject and allowed me to research on several levels and from different perspectives. For this, a linking of theory and practice makes sense, because the examination of spatial theories enriches my artistic implementation of the topic. The dance design in turn influences the theoretical knowledge. This interactive connection of knowledge and experience helps me to deal with the topic comprehensively. Putting theory and practice into context is important to me for another reason: it challenges me to move in a time-space where past and present are interconnected. The theories were developed in the past, the dance interpretation is in the present, because the body is in the now.
For the practical work I developed a solo choreography and record it in a film. This represents reality and absurdity of different spaces. The filmic realization takes place in a corridor with doors, which each lead to different rooms. There are four very different rooms. The absurdity is shown in the fact that the rooms that are behind the doors cannot be there in reality. The film also plays with distance, time, light, perception, perspective and movement.
I limited myself to Rudolf Laban's theory of space, William Forsythe's Improvisation Technologies and the description and reflection of my solo choreography.
