Playground #1 _ DOMINOS
Concept / Performance : Elma Riza
Sound : Klaus Janek
Duration: 20 min till 60 min.

„Playgrounds“ is a series of improvised solos in which the rules of the game are constantly reinvented. It involves body, space and object and the interplay of action and abstraction. The emerging landscapes are created by movements and rewriting of the rules of the game in the present moment. Space evolves and is undone; an imagined topography of the game develops in the process of improvisation – based on composition, the presence of the body and sound.

“(…) You start to compose a landscape within wich an event can take place
without necessarily knowing what kind of event it will be. But as you begin to assemble objects you are already discovering something about it´s dimension and qualities.
Shaping and reshaping the landscape is an integral part of improvisation (…)”
