Winterthur Festival Perform Now
A neatly folded transparent foil lies center floor. A naked man and woman enter the performance area from opposite sides and slowly raise one end of the foil upwards between their bodies until it reaches an overhead position. At a certain moment the performers release the foil allowing it to sink slowly down between their heads and upper bodies, held only between the pressing together of the two bodies. Movement then ceases. It is still and quiet. At this point the foil can be recognised as the central instrument of the performance. In time the space between the bodies opens and the foil is able to slowly lessen contact alllowing itself to fall to the ground. The man and woman leave the performance area.
