In ›Pieces and Elements‹, the widely acclaimed second part of her trilogy on collective bodies, Isabelle Schad brings together twelve performers to negotiate the idea of a collective body in motion that can only function as a whole. At the interface between western and eastern points of view, between the visual and the performing arts, between installation and choreographic miniatures, she considers the fluid borderlines between a scientific, biological, cellular approach to the body and one that sees the human body in relation to the cycle of nature. The single body with its rich scope of movement possibilities becomes a component part of a larger organism whose function and energetic potential is dependent on every single one of its sum elements.
