JEALOUS OF THE BIRDS

 

How do bodies influence space and how does space influence bodies? This was the starting question of a work that is tries to show that architecture is being used as a tool to control bodies. 

 

The performance space is constructed, and rebuild by the dancers who are intangled in a power-relation with the space as mediator.
