The body becomes part of an organism governed by a time slower than human time, and within it the boundaries between what is human and non-human are blurred. In “Uncannings”, things happen on a horizontal level. Here, the body doesn’t exist against a theatrical background, but in relation to the ground. By changing the order, we remove a frame, that belongs to theatre or ballet, of perceiving the body as a figure, a carrier of representation or a symbol. Here, attention is transferred to materiality and the body is arranged in its context. It creates and exposes layers, cracks, operates via horizontal movements and landscapes, as well as distorts that which is flat. The imagination fishes out new shapes from each sequential layer. Its frames crystallize in action.

This horizontal, geological perspective is a form of speculation. It allows for the stratification of seemingly intact body matter, for the slowing down of movement to a seismic velocity, and for the creation of a performance that is only a short fragment of the transforming existence.

Body seemingly motionless, however, it consists of continuous movements of development and decay. Around it, there are layers of material blurring the form. In slow movements they blend with the surface of the skin, creating undulating landscapes. The sheets, their surfaces and the lines drawn by the edge of the material, curl up and open afresh. They envelop the body, creating cracks, pockets, caves, and depressions.
