The performance Targeted was commissioned by the Cullberg Ballet dance company in Stockholm. It was performed at their Inhouse event on the 27th of February at Riksteatern in Hallunda south of Stockholm.
Targeted belongs to the Soft Target triology which consist of; solo performance Soft Target (2010), site specific quartet performance Soft Target Installed (2013) and black box trio Targeted (2014). The works of this trilogy deal with confronting the idea of the “Self” in an attempt to tear down the fabric of what separates the subject from the gaze. The performances are meant to invite the audience to direct their gaze inwards in order to have a scrutinizing inner dialog on how they watch, perceive, project, react and create. Dissecting the conditioned mind and its patterns to reconsider the way they operate, which might lead to renegotiation on issues like engagement and interest on all levels.
