In Konkretheit, a german word signifying concreteness, the attention is held on movement both meticulous and functional. Konkretheit is a study of the mechanisms of linguistic gesture; an attempt to reckon the distance between literary writing and redundancy of what can be called choreographic writing. More, and in many ways less, than a mere dance piece, Konkretheit is conceived as a collection of concrete movements as such. A bolster to the tangible, supporting simultaneously the place of narration and the space of poetic abstraction.
Enshrouded in a dense fog; the signifiers, haikus and incantations of Loge 22 conjure a fever dream of laboring figures. In Konkretheit, there is no “ I see…”, there is only “we witness”; inverse and reversible, the spectator and the spectacle.
Finally, one question remains “What is it we are witnessing?”
