[ 2012 ]
"Selfobject", chapter 2 of "KERESH" - a trilogy for two bodies and a plank by RONNIE HELLER and DGANIT ELYAKIM, featuring NICOLAS CASCALLAR MARQUIS.
"...in "Keresh" the duet expands to two bodies, as Heller holds the dancer N.C. Marquis, in a kind of pieta pose or a classic motherly embrace. The image of both of them together represents a fragile moment that contains within itself the potential collapse of all that is physical and conceptual. Though most of the time they are held together, it so seems that the slightest movement will destroy not only their weak connection, but a complete set of values. These are dances that contain total efficiency, performed at a speed that seeks no applause. Every object becomes in its relation to the body a small tamed piece of a place that holds within an order and an efficiency and a beauty, a new place of creation of life. Not out of dependents but through introspection and observation..."
