Pelkki Sini

A composition of a human figure placed in a challenging position. The impossibility of the composition is discharged into movement and sound, into a stream towards the free form of the performer, camera and image. Present is a cry on photographic paper, on film, where the outlines of the body and the space and time of a room merge with the outside, the presence and time of a rock. At the core of the piece is the intertwining and simultaneity of different spaces, the dialogue between reflex and control, choreography that utilizes improvisation as well as poetic text in relation to the image.
