Occult Geometry

Duration: 17 min
Concept: Jennifer Tee
Choreography: Jennifer Tee & Marjolein Vogels

In conjunction with the exhibition, Tee collaborated with dancer and choreographer Marjolein Vogels to develop a group choreography with 20 dancers and movers. Tee made a series of collages (diagrams) combining elements from Tao Magic; Suudan Koudou, the Japanese sport of precision walking; and ideas on geometrical abstraction articulated in the work of artists Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) and Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). This set of diagrams, which incorporated materials such as pigments, herbs, ceramic domes and swirls, stones, crystals, matches and gunpowder, functioned as a score to be interpreted in the choreography, aiming at visualizing the magical in abstraction.

Many thanks to all the performers in Amsterdam and Copenhagen.
