Circuit Training (exercises in self-doubt), 2018. 

Live Performance, duration approx. 20 mins

‘Circuit Training (exercises in self-doubt)’, is a 20-minute live choreographic work focusing on fragmentation of the body.

The body as material and the body as apparatus:
each choreographic segment of the performance explores this fragmentation in exercise-style sequences: #1 elbow joint, #2 knee lever, #3 hip- bone, #4 jawline, #5 shoulder socket.

The two female performers move in Pas de Deux (“Dance of Two”) — a term borrowed from ballet, where the female dancer is often supported by a male partner for lifts, turns, and balancing steps — creating an illusion of stillness.
