In series of border choreography, I play with turning the environment of a mechanism, that border control embodies, into abstracted movements. Those which encompasses every hour of automatic control procedure into a move, a sequence of a dance and poetry. Performances take place on the border between Ukraine and Slovakia or Hungary. I dance and perform mostly in front of a surveillance Camera, where border guards become my only audience.
In the piece with the poem “The snow erases traces of my moving feet, the barking of a dog defines endurance of a movement” the time is dictated by the situation. The poem is the regulation for the performer. The duration of a dance and presence of a poem on a fence is limited to a few minutes when barking of a police controlling dog be heard from afar means the end of a performance.
