WFOW (2010)

 

Choreography that can be heard, sensed and seen as a soft provocation. WFOW builds upon physical practice edited through choreographic composition inviting the audience on a journey in concentrated fog.

 

WFOW is the development of Welds participation in Göteborg Dans & Teater Festival 2010 with Weld far out west. The process: Ingrid Cogne, Sybrig Dokter, Anna Koch and Rasmus West travelled to Gothenberg - an analogue trip that was estimated to take 5 days. On August 26th, the excursion transcended into a performance where field studies became precise choreography. To avoid losing control, and oneself, whilst exploring the social and spiritual dimensions of travelling, sharp game rules have been applied as well as walking shoes, map, camera and compass. ”You think you are about to take a trip, but soon it is the trip that is taking you or defining you.” Nicolas Bouvier
