These four forms, as also the possible intervals between them, compose a grid, a technology of relations. “Braiding” the past with whatever looks like a future and guessing for possible contact areas, points of communication of fragmented, unsynchronized relations, that are in distance with each other and others that collide.
Where? Upon surfaces which seem unstable and transformative.
A platform that changes its inclination when humans displace themselves, a virtual space that is created by their own voices and one choreographic practice which is developed by the relations of their Bodies.
In these “places”, holy purple make speculations about the current nature of humans, the nature of their “dance” and hence the dance performance itself.
By the uniqueness of the dancer and the ways by which they perceive, live, train, observe and therefore research the world, holy purple shares processing methods as potentialities for rearrangements and transformations; as relational possibilities, but not directed to deliver knowledge.
In April 2021, the team shares their final phase of rehearsals in public space and in order to film the perfromance. | hiding in holy purple.
In parallel, a series of meetings-talks take place upon this platform and in public space | turning in holy purple and finally the digital form of the project is activated from the 20th till the 30th of April. During these days, visitors/users of the site may upload furtherly their own voice recordings at www.holypurple.com | gardening the holy purple.
According to the circumstances and for the time being, we are unable to share the location and the dates for all the forms of this art project. It seems that every form of it that is published or shared, either it is distancing itself or approaching the notion of form as we already know it.
“Jump as carmine, Blue as to fall, turn as gardening, pas de deux knots.”

gardening the holy purple digital performance
Date: 20th – 30th April
The digital “performance” evolves through the “divorse” of the digital and physical world and of any presence and absence. By creating a common place of human voices, it is suggestive of human life.
The voices, detached as they are, they whisper, they allow exclamations, they punt for breath, they breath, they shout out silently and finally they fall silently.
This digital “dance performance” researches liveness through relating and through embodying its pastness while creating common spaces with others.It suggests an application of the choreographing research around the question of how a dance performance lives in the digital world.
The website will be available from the 20th till the 30th of April for visitors and users to upload their own sound recordings.
