Concept:Conceived as a cross-journey between an ordered, disciplined and beautiful past and a chaotic, atomized and unhinged present, a contemporary take on the discomfort of temporality, the nostalgia that brings solace but not a solution. Disbalance and ephemerality is explored with a keen medium of movement that inhabits the watershed between tradition and contemporaneity and negotiates time as a vision of life through dance that can encourage us to move through these troubled times and hope for a constructive, positive and meaningful time not so far away.

VIENNA (17th – 24th July)

Sapphire’s presentation of SOULS IN TRANZIT
as a special Global Village Programme Activities Award Winnerat
XVIII International AIDS Conference, July 18-23, Vienna, Austria
At Global Village, Reed Messe Wien, July 19 at 3.30 pm
Concept:
Two individuals meet, connect and part. These meeting points intimate and vulnerable in content and lost in time are well connected through movements that speak of the risks of human behavior and the power of human resilience. The piece is interactive as many of the movements begin in the audience and dialogue with members of the audience who participate in the process of the improvisation. This leads to the audience being involved in the realization of the relationships between the two dancers and getting a real -life understanding of the situation of HIV/AIDS and how it can change lives and perspectives.
