The aim of this work is to create a choreography through collaborative methods. The choreographic method works towards promoting qualities such as giving and taking and individual performer responsibility within the group. Through the process it seeks to awaken our perception of the various roles and thus deepen our communication as a group.
The work is inspired by the way a swarm functions and manifests: to quote Eugene Thacker, “a swarm is a dynamic phenomenon that always exists in time and as such is always acting, interacting, interrelating and self –transforming. It is a whole that is more than its parts, but it is also heterogeneous. A swarm has no central command yet the actions of the swarm are directed, the movement motivated and the pattern has a purpose”.
