Rosalind  Goldberg

The body harbors a reserve of dynamite. Lurking under the skin, the destructive forces are existence itself, dissolving identity instead of solidifying it. The body’s capacity to undergo metamorphosis is part of our biology, and we celebrate its ability to change. Change is often seen as something positive, a progression, a step forward. But the capacity for progress comes at a price: it is often counterbalanced by a form of destruction. This does not contradict life - it makes life possible.

DARK DYNAMITE is a choreography for one dancer amongst several sculptural bodies. The work has been shaped by those dark forces that inherently shape our bodies, accelerate or slow them down, such as fatigue, lethargy, apathy, restlessness, negligence, despair, or looseness. These forces are challenging and have the potential to undo us at any given moment. It is the side of life many wish to suppress. As an attempt to separate these dark forces from everyday life, they are pathologized and treated as medical diagnoses although this reserve of darkness is nothing less than life itself. The more the vulnerable sides of life are medicalized, the more our sense of normalcy shrinks in turn. By letting life's worn and unbridled sides unfold, the choreography points to the idea that parts of life are self-forming matters beyond control, and its dark forces are inevitable game players.

Humans are symbiotic beings. We carry ten times as many bacteria inside us as our own cells, and some of us also host various parasites, fungi or viruses. Such, we can see ourselves as clusters of different life forms as much as individuals. We are always also in contact with various other things that work on us. Gravity, the ground we stand on, the air that passes through our lungs and the water that we drink constantly shape us, even if on a micro level.

In Western thinking it is common to separate things/matter from living beings. This tendency prevents us from recognizing the vitality of matter, the capacity of things (Jane Bennett). But if the distinction between life and non-life collapses, can we become part of the world in a new way? We are inspired by philosopher Timothy Morton, who says that ecological thinking means to see all beings (in the broadest sense) as spectral and to think of coexistence as something radically non- anthropocentric.
