Avgang 2021: We Go Around in Circles at Night and are Devoured by Fire

Georgiana Dobre’s master project in choreography explores space, imagination, movement and matter.

Masses of fluids. Iron and fatty substances. Spirals of individual stories. Intersecting and rearranging pathways. Movement here becomes unpredictable. A prolongation of self. Shaped in constant processes of unrecognised territories. What was once part of me, is now part of a pool of mixed masses of bodily essentials. In this system, we are all at the same time. We are all intertwining, and mingling in compost.

Bits and pieces of corn and baby wipes represent the protagonist of the new union. A hierarchy of altered categories, in processes of connections. Like taking a peek inside the liver. Concentrated to the unrecognisable. By walking one must pay attention to rhythm, ground, interaction, weight. We sensed not only movement but also distance. The rising and dissolving of sounds prevent the space from being boxed in. Radiation, entering in dreams, skin and industrial warning signs, easy to walk on, is sensing and even knowing us. Emptiness of vision, retreating in the background without further notice, being perceived.

Complete darkness amidst the brightness of a white room becomes fog or one of those mirrored rooms. Day and night falling into centuries, in a world of heated rock and swirling clouds, evaporating into each other, carried by plants and falling hairs, collapsing ridges, eroding skin and eyes, slowly. Everything that sinks down in the gaze, bones, mould, rain and heat will be stored in colours of white-grey.  10.000 years from now, remembering the meeting between symbiotic organisms, cell-phones and long-distance power lines.

Georgiana Dobre is a Romanian dancer and choreographer with a background in classical ballet and contemporary dance. She graduated with a BA in Choreography at the University of Theatre and Film in Bucharest in 2010. Since then, her work has been engaging in themes related to feminism, gender, ecology, and practices of magic.

The work We Go Around in Circles at Night and are Devoured by Fire is a film and a dance performance made in collaboration with three dancers, a composer, and a visual artist.
