Eve is in the middle of the room sitting on a chair, dressed very neatly, like a girl you trust. But she looks at a fixed point in front of her and conveys something disturbing. It’s as if she knew everything. As soon as we enter the room, she looks at us.
Eve (dance is an unplaceable place) is a mixed-media project based on three Embodied Virtual Reality experiences and a live dance performance.
A dance is going to say what words cannot about reality. A dance around you, a dance that you do, a dance that you imagine in unexpected places. Are these places imagined or real? Dance is improbable, it does not belong anywhere. You do not need words to say what a dance is going to do.
