zig zag calling amending the net (2021)
Performance variable 30 mins
Performed by Donya Speaks and Natascha Moschini
The performance explores a web of connectivity with the voice and traces of movement with the body in the public space and in relation to the audience and passers-by.
Two dancers map their presence in the public environment through their interactions with each other and their surroundings, questioning power and normative structures within a gathering of individuals. Bachmann places emphasis on the voice which allows a calling to happen between the performers and highlights the idea of interconnectedness through sound and language in both articulate and inarticulate form.
At the same the voice and sounds cut through the ordinary sound levels, stopping people in their track and reacting to it in various ways pointing to established norms in public space.
