Blind Spot

Blind Spot is a quest to find what scarce traces remain of Epp Kotkas, an Estonian artist who was active in the experimental dance scene of New York in the 60s and 70s. Talve combines fact and fiction to tell the story of an artist who was totally unknown in her home country. What you witness is an essayistic memory that attempts to reconstruct an unrecorded past.

Jan Vromman focuses on the uncertainty of humans – and artists – about their role in this existence. In this respect, we all seem like poets with an alphabet, searching for a language that might generate meaning. Vromman’s lecture highlights texts that seek to express this train of thought. He combines this with footage from his extensive archive.

Léa Drouet finds a spot in Kanal that she transforms into an area for play and experimentation for her six performers. Like a social laboratory, the piece tests the process involved in composing and disbanding groups. Infinite (re)arrangements of bodies and stage elements define new social rules like alternatives to the sole principles of inclusion and exclusion.

PRICE is appealing to movement and music to answer this question.
