IMA IDUOZEE / THIS IS THE TITLE
Fri 6.4. at 19
Sat 7.4. at 19
On a blindingly white dance floor This is the Title unfolds with fluid elegance. The work questions the relation between our individual choices, the norms set by our environment and the boundaries that we ourselves build. After it´s Helsinki premier, This is the Title has toured in 14 countries across Europe, Asia and North-America.
Reconstructing the conventions of contemporary movement and breaking, Iduozee´s debut work was also a contemplation on his personal body history. The choreographic arrangement of the work is based on a set of repetitive gestures, that interplay with video, light and sound. The distinctive approach to movement comes from Iduozee’s background in both breakdance and contemporary techniques. As we watch his sculpted and ever-moving body, he becomes a prisoner of the precise space he has created for himself. Subtle lighting and sound design complete this minimalist landscape, where the power and grace of the performer captivates our imagination and senses.
"Ima Iduozee dances in a space that radiates around him in a very humble way, delicatly. The silent beauty that emerges from it´s jouxtes invisibly revives our thirst for light and calmness." -Le Monde / 21.7.2014
