Fugue, 2012

Performance / Duration: 4 hours 

Six strong men are situated in a waiting room of sorts. They are surveying their surroundings – the room, its’ visitors and each other. Their presence is calm and their stature - significant.

Each of them follows an individual instructional script, which only they can hear through a single earphone. The instructions indicate where and how the men should stand, as well as gestures and facial expressions. Positions in space are designated by numbers.

The scripts are one hour long and looped. Each man executes his own script, and in combination the six of them move through sequences of choreographed formations. The construction as a whole is based on principles of musical fugue composition.
