PETER, the plague

a list, a history, a contagion, a memory, a thought, a lifestyle, a choice, a miracle, a child, a verse, a sickness, an announcement, an archive, a protest, alive, another, a promise, practice, problem, performance, place, position, parameter, prediction, pest, pretense, plan, pipe, pop, pfff…

In PETER, the plague we encounter an anarchy of bodies at work performed by choreographer Peter Mills. As part of the Choreomania programme, this arrangement of movements besiege the construction of the self which we all carry with us. This is the forced contagion of the individual, where the performance shifts in a relentlessly expansive bewildering stream of consciousness. As the dancing body attempts to exist in a multitude, a new ethics for the single dancing body is proposed.
