Telescoping is a long-term research initiated in early 2018 by Jana Jevtović and Engin Can which takes the form of a practice and performance. Telescoping researches what is being transmitted when we dance and what is being transmitted in the processes that accompany all of our dancing: personal life, social circumstances, modes of production, organization, marketing, lobbying, administration. Telescoping considers the dancer’s body as a live and living archive which continually sediments movements, associations, connotations, and in so doing keeps the sediments moving.
Produced by Nomad Dance Academy Slovenia, Jana Jevtović and Engin Can, in collaboration with Cirkulacija2 and with the support of City of Ljubljana. Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union within the frame of DANCE ON, PASS ON, DREAM ON.
Thanks to Dragana Alfirević, Borut Savski, Stefan Doepner.
All is here.
All the movements are here, available.
All the movements between movements are here.
We are here. With all our movements, available.
And everything between us, us and you, you and the time.
Here, we are but movements. And the movements in between the movements.
We have nothing, we own nothing, we owe nothing to us, to you, to the movements.
Yes to movement.
Yes to us.
Yes to you.
Yes to the movement that connects two movements.
Yes to memory.
Yes to imagination.
Yes to facts.
Yes to the obvious.
We are stripped down to wear but a movement. One that is many. Many that is everything but one.
We you you you we us.
Movement between us. Movement distance between us.
Rest assured the movement will stay when you will be gone.
Stay tuned to what the movement between you and us will bring.
Notice the distance between departure and gesture of departure.
It is not movement that is ephemeral, it is us.
Movement has no memory and no imagination, that is reserved for us.
Eternity is a synonym of movement.
We are made of movements.
