“itness” is a choreographic trance state performed by one individual in the presence of spectators whom are invited to take part on this cleansing ritual as witnesses. “itness” is reclaiming the body as powerful, instinctual and transformable organism. The movement material is based on somatic practices that focuses on the inner body movements and vibrations. By exploring extreme intensity within the body, through transformation of movement and energy, the performer connects with an inner predator. The performance offers the spectator with raw bodily experience.
