Gland

1/4

In her new solo Gland, the choreographer and dancer Kat Válastur wanders through unknown landscapes created alongside her body. Gland is a projection of a landscape, in which a series of events is experienced in parallel universes, shifting from familiarity to the unfamiliar. The tiger's leap, the stillness of the statue, shining of the asphalt on a rainy night, all belong to the same category. Every gesture belongs to a constellation of thoughts about its meaning. What if there is no meaning but only gestures? Now step out from the projection and tell me where you are. With her own particular virtuos­ity, Válastur presents new challenges to habitual perception over and over again. Gland is the first work in a series of choreographies by Kat Válastur entitled The marginal Sculptures of Newtopia and will take place in two complementary spaces: on stage (dimension a) and on the web ­(dimension b).
