This dance production is inspired by Liminality, “a threshold”. Humanistic psychologists describe “the ‘out-of-this-world’ quality associated to liminality a sort of trance-like feeling. Analytical psychologists have often seen the individuation process of self-realization as taking place within a liminal space.

Individuation can be seen as a “movement through liminal space and time, from disorientation to integration…. What takes place in the dark phase of liminality is a process of breaking down…in the interest of “making whole” one’s meaning, purpose and sense of relatedness once more”.

The final result will be a live performance. It will be presented across gallery, stage, and public space.

Dance, sound, visual art and multimedia( July 19 Rehearsal)

Since 2014, Amman based Dance Company Studio 8, has been calling all artists of any discipline (visual, digital, coding, installation, film, photography, painting, art managers, musicians, event managers, students, producers, curators) to work together, to collaborate, to create side by side, loosening boundaries between artistic labels, in favor of a more open and flexible view toward the art experience itself.

Building on this approach, from 18 to 25 of July 2019, Studio 8, made possible by the support of Al Mawreed Al-Thaqafi, organized a production residency bringing together an artist duet of French sound artist François Donato and French/Iranian visual artist Golnaz Behrouznia. and five performers based in Jordan, with the aim to create a concrete project that is crossing borders of genres and disciplines: dance, performance, visual arts, performative arts, animation, projection, coding, etc.

Prior to the residency, six dance artists have developed 15-20 minutes movement sequences. For the first day of the residency, visual artists, sound designer and dance artists shared their thoughts on the movement-design-in-progress, explored the connections between movement and visual arts, performative arts and sound, installations and dance. For the second day, artists met in Osama El Mashini Theater tasked to expand the possibilities of art through the merging of disciplines in an experimental process of collaboration.

A Look behind a Master Piece

How did you go about working together to build this dance hybrid installation?

A new type of collaboration.

A massive part of the whole project is just to start to have a conversation, what interests us, what kind of things might stimulate further conversation or dialogues.

….. to give us a baseline in terms of rhythm to work on top of ….

Music is very physical too. Should it be following the dance and the set? Music touches you. It could hit you, or stroke your neck.

I don’t see art as an object. I see it as a relationship, a relationship between dancers, between dancers and the stage, between dancerss and the audiences…

YOKO SEYAMA

Light is key for Berlin-based Japanese scenographer and multimedia artist Yoko Seyama. Her latest installation “Saiyah – Light and Color composition #2” is a kinetic light sculpture, featuring a GiantMirror by ShowTex.

The light of a light source as white as daylight is split into two colours by projection on a spectral window which only lets through a specific colour wavelength while the remaining wavelengths are reflected. With this simple mechanism, the colours are remixed over and over again to create new layers, patterns and colours of the spectrum. In total four motorised spectroscopic windows and a full mirror by ShowTex were used to create a unique interaction of moving colours.
