S l o w D a n c e is a choreographic project that investigates movement and presence for the purpose of producing a sensorial and visual experience of slowness. With altered states of speed it explores the emotional, meditative and ambient effects on the body. As part of a SlowArt movement the work involves attention to the experience of time unfolding; the watching becomes both conscious and embodied. In trying to engage the viewer in sustained attention, the project aims for an interlude from an otherwise accelerated society.
The phrase ‘SlowDance’ was coined by the artists as both the title of this work and as a general gathering term with which to think dance praxis.
