Patella - floating bone​

Patella - floating bone is an inclusive and immersive performance work exploring the life of materials and the space between, created in collaboration with Kaaos company by dance artist Georgie Goater and theatre artist Elina Sarno, originally as their MA dissertation work at Theatre Academy Helsinki in 2018. It was  further performed at the

X Dance Festival Helsinki at Zodiak, Cable Factory in 2018 and at the Move Fest,

Košice in 2019.

A curious array of objects and materials immerse the shared space, between performers of different embodied perceptions and audience. Lively hyper-textures of sound, body, light, voice, object, and movement evoke their different materialities in an equal field of play, suspension, and contemplation.

"I wish I could separate different body parts together and apart. Some of them are hanging in the air. You can allow them to look at us. Or are they even watching. Humans and objects, what’s the space in between us. Laughing bones, can you see the limits on my skin. Dream-like, we sense together. Wordless flying into a bellyflop."
