I will not stay here long

She is standing silently and looking at us: A woman in green velvet jumpsuit. Ida Daniel, a student of the department for “Choreography and Performance” is searching in her graduation performance the traces and multiple existences that inhabit this body that is uncanny and familiar at the same time. A body lives in a promising relationship with all those who inhabit it. But what type of body do they enjoy? Maybe a singing and dancing one? Or one that is rather invisible? Or constantly jumping? Or constantly sleeping? Or just one superbody? Or two?
You know that a moment has finished when a new unlived life gets started.
For I will not stay here long Ida Daniel fantasizes bodies of text, sound, light, image and matter that want to expose themselves in stillness and in motion. Bodies that refuse to get settled.
