Diptico

The deconstruction and demystification of tango as a dance form. The choreographer plays with the idea of what is 'original' and what is a 'copy', what is live and what is recorded. The piece focuses on the human (dancer) body as object, where the human figure is altered, transformed and  trimmed to the point of losing its 'characteristic'. In Díptico, the body as object is being represented by a Tango dancer who is being forgotten and who is left out the market. The dance piece leader revolves around issues of the craftsmanship and the creative exploitation of the artist. Díptico's dance-work wants to invite the spectator to reflect on the mediatization and manipulation of visual culture, the human image and the artist’s identity. At the same time, the intention of this dance-work is a critical approach to universally canonized definitions of 'art work', 'artistic creation' and 'geniality' within Western society.
