Dario Tortorelli, Dance Improvisations, 2017

Can our bodies be invisible and present at the same time? How can we disconnect from the space we are in and at the same time give the impression that we belong? While visitors experience The Painted Bird, a dancer enters the exhibition space with the simple task of experiencing the space as entirely new and going through the motions of what in dance is called ‘training and transcending the body’: slow-motion bodies, projecting bodies, infinite bodies, traveling bodies, timeless bodies, visible and invisible bodies, transforming bodies, adapting bodies, transcending bodies.
