UP is a video-installation dealing with the intensive perception of movement. Visitors of the walkable installation become part of a fierce, yet tender encounter between two dancers. The musically edited sound uses the original noises of the dance scenes, such as breathing, jumping or a hand stroking an arm, and intensifies the game with perception.
Immediate proximity to the on-screen action is created by a predetermined spatial delimitation of the installation. Viewers are confronted with the power and intimacy of physical movement and thus are made aware of their own bodies.
UP is a framework program of LINIE 08. It is open two hours before and one hour after the stage performances every day between the 11th and 19th December 2015.
Where: Südempore, Festspielhaus Hellerau
