Julia B. Laperrière & Sébastien Provencher (Montréal/Berlin)
17 – 18 Jan 2020
| Made in Potsdam 2020
| Dance / performance
In an aseptic world, two bodies are born from cubes: flesh meets edges, warmth meets cold, mobility meets static. Carefully and awkwardly they discover their new environment – a universe that surpasses them, but whose laws they try to understand, whereas it is already deconstructing. Gradually coincidence and unpredictability take over, accidents multiply and the two protagonists fight to keep their world under control. What Will Come questions the human obsession of categorization, juxtaposed with the world’s natural tendency to move towards chaos. How are categories, order and compartmentalization reflected in our bodies and in our environment? Julia B. Laperrière and Sébastien Provencher are explorers of the absurd, of the power of decomposition and of new emergence.
