At this event, Bodhi Project will present two pieces of work in one evening, with an interval inbetween:

Performance 1

“bodhi” by Mala Kline (SVN)

It is said that the site of the bodhi tree is the last place on earth that would be destroyed when the world comes to an end, and when the world reappears it would be the first site to be created. The Slovenian choreographer Mala Kline and the dancers of Bodhi Project explore the potential of the tree as an image, a diagram, as a site where the world dreams itself into being. It unfolds itself moment by moment, from within the body that is itself a tree, from the intervals between bodies that are a tree. bodhi is a tree that dreams, a tree that dreams itself into being through dance.

*bodhi is based on SaphireTM. SaphireTM Work is a registered trademark of Catherine Shainberg.

Performance 2

EXSTESIA by Iratxe Ansa (ES) and Igor Bacovich (IT)

Exstesia is the latest work of Bodhi Project. In cooperation with the internationally known dancers and choreographers Iratxe Ansa and Igor Bacovich they developed this new creation which premiered in the frame of New Faces New Dances festival in republic in February 2017. 

Exstesia means nothing. Synesthesia, Ecstasy and Aesthetics means something.  Exstesia is a fantasy word made up blending those concepts together. Please enter my abstract capsule for a while and let go the laws of time, space and power.  Explore my world made of dreams and absurd impressions where one dream relieves the next, and you fall, fly and balance between reality and fantasy. In this extravagant world what really matters is you and me. Premiere: February 22nd, 2017 / republic Theatre, Salzburg (New Faces New Dances Festival)
