“We find each other in the plenum” is a duet. In an empty space, surrendered to its simplicity, everything is reflected. We commit ourselves and through contact, we research relationships under the surface. The relationships within us, which give a meaning to encouragement, support, trust.
A complete and at the same time unrelated relationship. Plenum is the opposite of emptiness. We are talking about the plenum of each of us. Those moments when each of us, in a relentless effort to gain our independence, does not survive without the other. The important Other is the one who influences thought and emotion. She is the one who constructs our reality. She is the one who passes from the past to the present. It is the interaction and the transition from the empty to the complete.
Typically, it is about “sharing” experiences in a world of loneliness, where we create together. A meeting in which we research relationships below the surface. The relationships within us. Relationships of uniqueness, characterised by difficulty to balance, where their foundations is their identity. More specifically, the project “We find each other in the plenum”, concerns a journey of two women who “go through” three different situations.
The transition from one condition to the next is particularly important as it determines the smooth outcome.In the first part, the dancers move in perfect harmony and synchronisation, however every small change is the connecting link for the continuation of the piece. The frequent but imperceptible change of directions, forms a different space and a different perspective each time.
The transition from one part to another is in a way a necessity for the relationship of the two always maintaining the interaction and the importance of the existence of the other.
