There is no space and time before movement. The body does not move into space and time—it creates space and time.
Our bodies are constantly in motion, reaching out towards something and creating different relationships with everything around us. In a way, they constantly seek to reinvent themselves and become something else. This potentiality appears every time language exceeds its syntax, every time another exceeds our reach, every time we sense more than we comprehend.
The Lost Wax Project explores the potentiality of space and its interrelations with the human body. The title is a metaphor from the sculpting process, in which wax moulds are used to cast metallic sculptures. When the sculpture takes its final shape, the wax that fills the mould is “lost”.
“You are seeing something tangible, but [what] made it tangible is no longer there,” says choreographer Preethi Athreya, comparing the casting process to the function of the body in space. In this work, she crafts a circular stage around which the audience sits, inviting them into an intimate experience of the negative space between human bodies.
Chennai-based contemporary dancer and choreographer Preethi Athreya was trained in bharatnatyam under the Dhananjayans. She went on to attain a post-graduate degree in Dance Studies from the Labon Centre, London, and has been working with the eminent choreographer Padmini Chettur since 1999.
