Carte Blanche will open its 2022 season with a collaboration with the Hungarian artist Eszter Salamon. Following an year and a half of limited conditions, the company is again set to create a full-length production with a focus on experimentation and history with all the dancers on stage.
Since 2001, Eszter Salamon has presented solos and full-scale works at venues and museums around the world. As a choreographer and performer, Salamon often works on the relationship between choreography and history, and bodies' place and representation in both art and society. In her work with Carte Blanche, the company will be incorporated into Salamon's MONUMENT series, which explores the monument as an emancipatory space resisting oblivion and exclusion.
For her, choreography is a way of organising different artistic practices and medias, and she likes to combine voice, image, movement, text and physical experimentation. Salamon is interested in exploring contemporary issues. Her works develop in different formats and a broad range of expressions through clever use of aesthetics, methods and poetics.
The performance, which has been given the title The Living Monument, creates a world with its own logic. The shifting landscapes reveal fictional images and sensations. The reuse of fabrics and objects creates unique scenic images in a choreography that plays on body shapes and energy.
Almost like an installation, the visual environment develops into a living monument of voices, movement, figures and textile materials. The gradual transformation between colours, sounds and costumes create The Living Monument's dynamic approach to contemporary dance.
