HOW TO _ just another Boléro
HOW TO _ just another Boléro is a short duet on the renowned one-movement orchestral piece “Boléro” by the French composer Maurice Ravel. This famous straightforward composition inspired the two authors and performers to create an ever-changing-bodies-landscape within the limited and confined space of a carpet. Here, 18 ephemeral images merge into each other in a suspended tempo as if detached by the surrounding reality. The two performers, as animals in captivity, are forcibly squeezed into a tight but familiar space, where they seem to have lost the notions and memories of their nature, role and behavior for coexistence. As domesticated animals in a zoo-cage and depending on one another, they are observed and gazed from the outside.
HOW TO _ just another Boléro aims to become a portrait of different attempts at re-learning how to behave, touch, cooperate, help, love... constantly shifting between dramatic and ironic tones.
