Since April 2018, I am in a constant transition, without a place to come back to, without a specific base. It has to do with continuous planning of routes, stops and sketching the landscape of tomorrow. Numerous questions about the past or upcoming trips, diminish the “now” to a thin line between past and future. It results in experiencing the events, taking place in the present, in a way of immediately relating to them in past terms. “Now” is occupied by planning as well as with reporting. Constantly changing the place of being, demand readapting to new landscapes around. Finding your ways in a new city, looking for transportation possibilities to arrive to a specific spot, encountering new people. All of this keeps one’s attention on the outside. It by far moves the perception to the peripheries and eventually also shifts the point of self-reference to a space outside own’s body.
Concept and choreography: Bartosz Ostrowski
