Dance Through Spacetime 

2021

Etudes (or studies) are a fundamental part of every artist's repertoire. More often than not, these drawings are made in the studio with a model standing still for extended periods of time. This artistic experiment, however, breaks these parameters, focusing on movement as its main subject. 

All drawings in this showcase have been made during the dance and choreography rehearsals for Bits of Personality Left Alive (part of Impulse at Derrida Dance Centre, Sofia, 2021) . The four participating dancers are in constant movement and the charcoal moves across the paper in symmetrical and simultaneous speed and rhythm. The larger works on grey paper are developed on the basis of these quick sketches, with the idea of light mobility, lithe movement and temporal continuity. 

A dance through space-time.
