Study #14 of the THE SYMMETRY PROJECT
by Jess Curtis and Maria Francesca Scaroni
“The Symmetry Project is a journey through perception. Two naked bodies interact through a highly structured improvisational score, constricted in a specific physical practice; that of moving symmetrically, relative to themselves or to each other… Exploring and manipulating our perception, they reveal the body’s awkwardness, its monstrosity, its potential failure and finiteness, they create space for the possibility of the unknown, the wondrous, the ecstatic, the infinite.”
This isn’t a short film but it is rather fascinating to watch as the performers become entangled in near-sexual and then acrobatic poses. Kind of mesmerizing.
