HYPERBOLE EXTENDED is a performance artwork presented by eight dancers of the FMKF collective and orchestrated by Franka Marlene Foth. The piece is conceived as a synergy between dancers, sound, and audience and focuses on the visual and auditory experience. The poetic logic created through intuitive work, in which dance as an individual narrative raises the viewer to the same emotional level as that of the artists, allows the poetry of dance to flow, as well as the expressivity and strength of the dancers to become visible.
Dance traverses the worlds of art without constantly belonging to it or receiving due recognition as a primary art form. HYPERBOLE EXTENDED frees artists from this stigma and reveals the artistic dimension of dance in its pure form. The piece implicitly raises the question of identity. The choreography becomes a tool for individual storytelling without limiting the viewer’s imagination to preconceived notions. Dance is cathartic and finds its own unique narrative while serving as a language for those who perform it.
The collectively performing bodies of the dancers open a place of accessibility for the audience. It is the experience at the moment that counts. The body serves as a medium. HYPERBOLE EXTENDED lives from the immediacy of the present and reminds us of deep sensual experiences in times of physical alienation and social isolation.
As part of the premiere of HYPERBOLE EXTENDED, another work by Franka Marlene Foth will be exhibited. On display is the first work from a series of A.I. visuals that explores the reality of human perception of bodies.
HYPERBOLE EXTENDED will premiere in two performances on October 15th at 17h and 21h.
