PERVASIVE MAGNETIC STIMULI

SYNOPSIS

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
C G Jung

In this latest work for 3 dancers, Guðjónsdóttir opens up a new and unexplored realm of her choreographic methodology and deepens her distinctive and innovative performance aesthetic even further.

PERVASIVE MAGNETIC STIMULI serves as a doorway into the sub- and unconscious. Populated by instincts and archetypes, C G Jung saw the Collective Unconscious as an unconscious field that transcends the personal psyche and having a physical home localised anatomically in the subcortical centres, the cerebellum and the spinal cord. The onstage spectacle and its supporting methodologies represent a realm where appearances and consciously motivated action are not the lived reality of our lives. Forces equally ancient as current and far greater than all of us are explored through a  language which is marked by an infinite presence that reveals and pervades its environment in the same moment.
