Darkness fills the space. Very slowly, the contours of more and more things begin to appear. All of the elements on stage – the bodies of two dancers, sound, light – are considered to be equal protag-onists. Each detail influences the progression of the choreography and opens up new realms of pos-sibility. Again and again, the two performers craft new layers and thus enable various perspectives on the events at hand. They take on new standpoints, create fanciful transition-al landscapes, pile up and then rearrange what they find in front of them. With its repetitive nature, this work develops an enduring narrative, an everlasting moment in time – a performance without beginning or end. 


we began walking THERE we have been is a performance for two performers and flashlights, which are operated by the two. It includes no other light source and from this perspective is literally a dark performance and includes moments of complete darkness.

The choreography is made of simple actions, focused on the interaction of light with body im-age/movement. As the performers simultaneously are operators and actors, so is the light. At times, its movement becomes the main player, so it’s perceived as an entity, a body. Other times, it illumi-nates another body or location.

we began walking THERE we have been is composed through a mirroring logic, meaning each ac-tion aims to reflect something of the previous one. The result is a detailed performance, in which each step, location and action are precisely measured and contributing to the overall visual, musical and sometimes magical experience.

Темнината го исполнува просторот. Многу бавно, контурите на сè повеќе и повеќе работи, почнуваат да се појавуваат. Сите елементи на сцената - телата на двата танчери, звук, светлина - се сметаат за еднакви протагонисти. Секој детал влијае на прогресијата на кореографијата и отвора нови области на можноста. Повторно и одново, двајцата изведувачи создаваат нови слоеви и на тој начин овозможуваат различни перспективи за настаните што се присутни. Тие заземаат нови гледишта, создаваат нереални транзициски предели, се натрупуваат, а потоа го преуредуваат она што го наоѓаат пред нив. Со својата повторлива природа, оваа работа развива траен наратив, и вечен момент во времето - претстава без почеток или крај.


we began walking THERE we have been е перформанс за два изведувачи и рефлектори, кои се управувани од изведувачите. Не вклучува друг извор на светлина и од оваа перспектива буквално претсавува темен перформанс и вклучува моменти на целосна темнина.

Кореографијата е направена од едноставни дејства, фокусирани на интеракцијата на светлината со слика на телото / движењето на телото. Како што изведувачите истовремено се оператори и актери, така e и светлината. Понекогаш, нејзиното движење станува главен играч, така што се перцепира како ентитет, тело. Во други времиња, се осветлува друго тело или локација.

we began walking THERE we have been, е составен преку логика на пресликување, што значи дека секоја акција има за цел да одрази нешто од претходниот. Резултатот е детален перформанс, во која секој чекор, локација и акција се прецизно мерени и придонесуваат за целокупното визуелно, музичко, а понекогаш и магично искуство.
