Sekunden später...

... zog sich die Gestalt in die Schatten zurück

dance performance, 2017, 55'

With Sekunden später… Nicole Seiler leads us into a poetically charged spatial and temporal spiral. In a set that is as minimal as it is imposing, two formidable performers – Anne Delahaye and Christrophe Jaquet – construct an interstice in which reality, time and memory mix together to form a single entity. The performance is the fruit of several years of research. As the dancers’ shadows (generated with the help of 3D video techniques) move toward autonomy, a very precise description of their actions summons up an absent reality. And we are unable to tell whether it is based on actual memories or rather the anticipation of events yet to occur. Through formal process and very concrete dance movements Nicole Seiler engages each spectator’s interpretational baggage in order to draw them into fantasy and eternity.
