Ecdysis is an excerpt from Force Majeure, adapted as a short solo dance piece. It can be programmed in dance festivals, shared events or for small stages. The costume is build of rusted construction steel. The relation allying steel and flesh examines areas of tension between human and non-human bodies, desire, resistance, power, fragility and death. The ice sculpture, which is an exact replica of the performer’s head, melts under a dynamic atmosphere of infrared light and represents the inexorable elapsing of time.
