Internationales Sommerfestival brought together visual artist Monika Grzymala, American choreographer Jeremy Wade and Jamie Stewart of XIU XIU who share an obsessive fascination with details highlighting the fractions and cracks of their artistic material, finding beauty in its fragility and roughness.
In a series of material studies, music, drawing and dance exchange, ride and overlay various linear principles that are deducted from physical and emotional impulses as well as structural qualities of the material. Tape, movement and sound draw spatial diagrams of the unconscious and follow forces and tensions between bodies, human dependencies and devotions; they follow and expand lines, exhaust structures and patterns, trace folds, figures and loops.
Rather than aiming at the synthesis of one readable image, numerous lines are propelled into space, get connected and cut, highlighted, interrupted and trashed. The result is a “gothic ballet” oscillating between formal abstract investigation and grotesque emotional expression. It follows twisted and jagged lines until they break, jumps between genres and creates a nearly spiritual experience with its intense linear meditation.
