Cosmic Love is Clara Furey’s first group work as Artistic Director. Her creation revolves around intuitive and poetic representations of physical phenomena.
In a stripped-down performance space where all forms of communication become possible, she works with her performers on the ongoing transformation of energy and ritualized movement. Clara Furey offers a kinesiology dance, a dance about matter and the absence of matter. She brings together performers and showgoers in the weightlessness of the senses. By questioning the vacuum of space along with every link and dynamics that it is filled with, she creates a choreographic work of abstraction, which reveals a unique glow of bodies. The space vibrates as the seven performers move and pave the way for a participation-driven world, infused with synchronicity, where different forms of energy are shared.
With this work the choreographer, who considers art as a means of linking different entities around a spirituality that is free from dogmas, sets out to create links between mediums, beings and senses.
