Dance Performance “here/there”
“A journey by a rubbish raft across an ocean of contrasts.”
Beginning with the topic of rubbish and ecology, the exploratory dance film and installation project “here/there” by Greta Grineviciute tells the story of a person’s inner journey. By referencing the accumulation of waste, the choreographer gave it a second life (recycled it). Firstly, she reproduced the props for scenography, and secondly, she introduced the concept of memory waste in her research. By “rubbish” we often describe not only things that are no longer consumed but we also mean intimidating people, thoughts, memories. Paradoxically, rubbish is something so unnecessary, unwanted, yet it travels with us everywhere even after our death. We forget that the entire history of mankind and its traces were formed and preserved in different parts of the earth precisely through migration and travel. The “here/there” project tells about its personal journey: the accumulated, sorted, discarded waste which perhaps never will remain as it is, and its attempt to find itself among all the waste there is.
