Delicate Movements is based on my experience living with my grandparents during the lockdown. My grandmother suffered from an illness that gradually took away both her speech and control over her body. It is a challenge to connect without words with someone you suddenly become physically close to. After a while, just that physical contact felt like our way of communicating. I became aware that my mindset of partner-acro (my hobby) came in handy here. The focus that came with each physical effort made the movements exciting. It required daring, confidence, and synchronicity, just like circus performers and dancers interact with each other.
Together with an acrobat/dancer, we explore what it means to give up control and to be in one movement with each other. An interaction that gave me a very different perspective on care, acrobatics, and connecting with another body.
