Palimpsest takes a choreographic look at the history of different places. It explores the poetic potential of the language of audio-description. It’s a collection of geo-tagged sound compositions that invite the listener on a guided tour. The audience members become actors in the movement, projected in spite of themselves onto the stage of an ephemeral theatre. Although the dancers will be physically absent their subtle evocation within the hyper-realistic narration will lead them to gradually materialize in the spectators’ imaginations - like phantoms haunting the surrounding landscapes. Physical proximity and intimacy are fundamental aspects of the piece’s concept and composition, which means that the audience will perceive the presence of the physically absent performers as something very much alive.
