ICARUS 4 (2003)

The First Phase (2001-2003). The construction of individual physical scores in the First Phase was bound with a technical investigation of the performer's craft. The first year of the project was dedicated to the transmission of physical training regimens that was also aimed at preparing the ground for performance-building. Various techniques for constructing a sequence of physical actions were investigated in 2002, mainly as they emerged from (1) physical exercises, (2) the work with objects and clothes, (3) working with partners, (4) spatial dynamics, and (5) working with music. The two First Phase presentations were never intended as finished pieces.
