Brigitte Huezo, iSaAc Espinoza Hidrobo und Beomseok Jeong ›Portraits‹
The project investigates the question of how dance portraits can be used to deal choreographically with queer concepts of identity. The classical portrait familiar to art historians is representation-oriented. What would a moving portrait be that does not define individuals within the rigid framework of the social norm? How can a smooth transition between dance and various media be effected? To what extent does each individual portrait consist of multiple identities? How can a "queer" portrait be created? The project not only encompasses a written analysis and record of human movement, but also makes use a mix of video, painting, drawing, audio, fashion design, 3D digital printing and photography. The choreography is adapted to different contexts: private and public spaces, social behaviour and the interactions of spectators, passers-by and residents.
