- in/out


In/out as a choreographic principle refers to inside or outside the performance space or audience visual field. Sounds that are heard through walls from outside the performance space are amplified and through speakers are played in the space, make them louder, more present. Actions that occur outside of the performance space, which effect the space without being visible in themselves are performed inside the performance space, in front of the audience. They provide the possibility to see an action that wasn’t seen before and receive additional information on the previous situation. In/out can also refer to the centre of attention of an action. The performers act with flashlights, move their body, move the flashlights and create images. Sometime they focus on operating light, on giving and directing attention to the visual effect they create. At other times they are driven by movement itself, from sensing the body and time of movement.
