“Who is a contemporary choreographer? I always imagine a contemporary choreographer as a person with a special awareness of his/her own body and capable of connecting the mind with the body in a unique way. To demonstrate this quality I devised a simple task: I have asked the practitioners to improvise a choreography, giving them only one instruction: they should be sat on a chair. For me the chair represents an obstacle to movement but at the same time an interesting prop for a challenge.”
