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 theatre artist Elina Sarno & Kaaos Company peroformers.
The work was made as the artistic component of Goater and Sarno's Dance and Theatre Pedagogy Master's Theses, from the programme at the University of the Arts Helsinki, 2018.
A curious array of objects and materials immerse the shared space, between performers of different embodied perceptions
and the 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."
