How does a body set itself in motion where the relation between the body and what surrounds it appears as a fundamentally precarious, vulnerable relation?
In Precarious Moves Michael Turinsky continues his investigation of resistant choreographic positionings through designing political aesthetics. At the centre of the solo, which is as much biographical as conceptual, lies the questioning of both his very own personal as well as urgent collective needs and necessities with regard to mobility and mobilization, pertinent as they are especially within the tension between movement and environment, between gesture and milieu. Oscillating between the organic and the organized, Precarious Moves unfolds as an ironic as well as engaged of the strange loop that connects the body with the sensual world through which it moves; as a searching movement in which the deviating gesture discovers its choreographic milieu, and at the same time opens our sensitivity beyond the same.
