A critical duet
Director and choreographer CeciliaMoisio and vocal improviser Ineke Vandoorn explore systems of power and gaze in their duet I Can See Myself Through Your Eyes. In today’s society, uncensored speech has become a norm and easy digital access has given each individual a voice. These parallels create a challenge, especially as an artist: how do we deal with constant critique? And do we change our behaviour when we know we are being watched?
Typical for Moisio’s work, the performance zooms in on the human psyche from a sociological standpoint, and transfers this to a theatrical form and choreographic space. Vandoorn translates this to music that gives voice to the inner world of both performers. As they exchange practices, they create a new language that incorporates both voice and movement. The result is an original, multidisciplinary experience, dance performance and concert in one, posing the existential question: Are we autonomous people or just a mirrored image of the opinions others have of us?
