A4 – space for contemporary culture


 

(EVERYWHEN) INBETWEEN is created by an international female collective – dancer Soňa Ferienčíková (SK), digital visual artist Mária Júdová (SK) and sound artist and architect Alexandra Timpau (RO/CZ) that collectively redefines the boundaries of dance through ambitious, cross-disciplinary practice.

Soňa has cooperated with various acclaimed choreographers, theatre directors and companies. She is the founder of the BOD.Y ngo. Mária has been investigating the creative potential of technology for over a decade. Her work spans from Virtual Reality experiences and (interactive) installations to audio-visual performances. Alexandra studied architecture and urban planning in Romania, yet after finishing her studies and moving to Prague she was hypnotized by the practice of live-coding sound.

“We are more connected than ever, we are changing into a mass that is trying to find balance. We pull and push. ”

(EVERYWHEN) INBETWEEN explores group tensions in a world of climate change, global pandemic, constant connectivity and instant reactions, where the space in between us becomes our collective body that needs to be remapped. Even if the geographical distance is keeping us far away, we are in connection to each other more than ever before and at this stage we are morphing into a mass that struggles to find balance once more. Inspired by interactive architecture, it stages four performers modifying a material that floats above them, by creating tension or releasing it. The object that is manipulated by the dancers becomes performative architecture – a “common body”. The shapes it takes are a result of their negotiations, but it also becomes their environment. Their cover, their base. This temporary shelter and space of negotiation is a reflection of the struggles and interactions between the dancers but also of society at large.
