This is an improvised performance of Tri Co. group, performed in 2013 in Theater Perdu, and then in 2014 in Montemurlo, and Teatro della Limonaia in Sesto Fiorentino in Tuscany.
Mouthpiece is a piece of plastic that is protecting a boxer from losing his teeth in a fight.
It’s very technical, it is similar to the fourth wall. But does it effect the brain of the boxer in fight? Will he percieve the fist as lesser of a threat?
Our mouthpiece is an improvisation piece with
overhead projection, light, dance and music.
Falling trilogy has been a big joint study of the Mono collective, guided by Silvia Bennett.
After Falling apart, Falling in love, and Falling Asleep, we set out to make a piece called Falling, in which we elaborated all the experiences of a one year creation of Falling trilogy, in one piece.
The falling trilogy is the first project of mono collective. The word “falling” contains a series of imagery that refers to actual falls due to the factor of gravity; at the same time “falling” as a word can also be used metaphorically.
Mono decided to unify metaphors and actual meanings. Realizing that when someone falls apart, in love or even asleep, the surrendering to gravity transforms into a surrendering of the ego – Mono collective wanted to overcome the fear of falling and just experience the feeling of it.
This piece is the choreography of Khouloud Yassine. I had the honour to work togther with her at Dansmakers Amsterdam on her Extra Time performance in 2011.The year after we worked on Entre Temps 2 in Theater Monnot in Beirut.
Khouloud is working based on rythmic subdivisions, and in this performance she shows in how many ways her body relates to music and how it becomes an instrument on stage.
