                                                     Oh! Deep sea – Corpus III –  Kat Válastur

 

Oh! Deep sea – Corpus III is part of a longer cycle by the Greek choreographer Kat Válastur, inspired by Homer’s Odyssey – in particular by the King’s visit to the realm of the dead, which he enters as a living man and where space and time become meaningless.

Over 2500 years later, in choreographic researche she derives very topical questions about human existence from the ancient epic: how can one make death experienceable on stage as an elementary condition as part of life?

Here for Kat Válastur it is not a question of the narrative performance of one of the oldest and most influential works of western literature. Rather, in a precise and slender act of seeing, observing and participating, she tracks down hidden archetypes and dissects biographical tales, recollections and images in expressive, minimalist movement sequences.

The bodies of the four performers pass through a whole life – your whole life passes before your eyes…
