zero visibility corp and choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen have with (im)possible revisited the eternal conflict and paradox of creating true and genuine relationships. Although touching on the previous productions “…it’s only a rehearsal” (2003) and “(but) that night I found her very alluring” (2006), this performance is perhaps more introvert in its effort of creating a physical and mental presence in which the Other is included.

The duet as form and seduction as artistic strategy are combined in (im)possible. The beauty and sensuality of the movements, the music and the scenography work by the principle of absorption rather that presentation. There is a possibility of being drawn into the performance by the play on the possible and impossible as an overall strategy.

The performance language is rough (acrobatic), soft (poetic) and comic (situational). Moving in waves of performance structures rather than narratives, it’s more like an (im)pulse than a story. As well as the presence of life and energy – the dancers and the living bodies – there is also absence; death and emptiness – the ashes, the empty boxes…

Is the (im)possible (finally) coming to terms with the paradox of life and death?
