The recordings for this double video projection were carried out at the MMK 3 in 2013. The work features a choreography in which the dancers Ander Zabala and Amancio Gonzalez combine their bodies in a knotted constellation.With this work, an event is offered that subtracts common elements typically associated with choreography: the structural development of time and space and the visual isolation of parts. This slow motion physical and optical puzzle in real time, which Forsythe calls an “entanglement” is a hybrid of choreography, film, and sculpture.
