»wound– or the wound of the butterfly … (2009)
Wounds speak in the waking and dreaming hours. The piece pursues a fantastic unfolding between dream and trauma. Zones of the formless, the fragmentary, where the suppressed and disappeared from consciousness is collected and pored over. The familiar slips from our grasp and structures that seemed secure just a moment ago begin to waver and break apart – causing reality itself to take on dream-like and painful traits. All that is absurd becomes probable. Like sleepwalkers, the performers are accompanied on stage by video projections (cyan), which together lead the dance into a state of fragility. »wound« explores human vulnerability and its pain.

»›wound‹ – a rare wonderful dystopia: the piece was a fascinating reunion with six talented dancers. An endless nightmare, which may be our reality, unfolds before our eyes. ›wound‹ is reminiscent of Strindberg’s ›A Dream Play‹ … – Moments of human vulnerability and desire …. The dream lives on, but the nightmare is not yet over, the wounds have not yet healed and destruction lies just under the surface. ›wound‹ is a unique and intense piece.« (Magasinet Terpsichore – Dänemark -, Maria Hammer, 2010)
