Work-in-progress performance of a development project.
Two evenings in November 2015 the findings and experiments from the first work period of Pigeon Superstition were presented at Dansehallerne, Cph. The audience (of professionals and lay-people) was presented with a series of staged tableaus, which in different ways illuminated magic from a visual as well as auditively perspective.
The discoveries of the preliminary investigations formed the focal for the work-in-progress performance without any words – with one man on stage and one in the darkness.
To engage and learn from the audience experience, a feedback session followed the performance. The session consisted of anonymously answered feedback questionnaires and casual conversation. Examples from the questionnaires of how attendants described the performance:
[translated from Danish]
Interesting, different, a worthy take on what magic can become.
Beautiful for both eyes and eyes. The sound image has a high quality.
Interesting, funny, poetic.
A mime performance with magical realism.
Very brave and unique. Magic in a completely different way. Really original.
Realized with support from the Danish Arts Foundation
