FreeSteps – Body Scenes
October 3rd – Boris Hristov House of Culture – Plovdiv
FreeSteps is a ten-years-project initiated by SU Wei-Chia since 2013. The project is aiming to explore the most primitive status of dance and to re-explore the possibilities of dancing. The choreography of Wei-Chia, co-founder of the company, is to peel off various layers of body characteristics and textures within set limitations – very often not repeating previous FreeSteps.
FreeSteps – NiNi
October 4th – Boris Hristov House of Culture, foyer
FreeSteps – NiNi was created on the sixth year of existence of HORSE’s FreeSteps project= A solo dance for unconventional spaces, FreeSteps–NiNi refers to neither goals, concepts and allusions, nor detailed arrangement. The performer gets dance free of fixed imagination, expectations and assumptions.
By researching different aspects of time and space, choreographer Su Wei – Chia creates different concepts of physicality.
In FreeSteps-NiNi a woman is performing a dance free of fixed imagination, expectations and assumptions while elements around, including landscape and spectators, become materials for the creation.
HORSE is presented in Bulgaria with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.
