Aukelien / Two minus one explores the boundaries between restriction and freedom of movement, within space and time, throughout a movement score. The starting point is the artists’ interest in the body language of the Dutch saxophonist Aukelien Kleinpenning, while playing Le Fr^ene Egare by Francois Ross’e. Inspired by her performance, the choreographers created a movement score, focusing on the use of breath, arm gestures, repetitions and upper body motion. The experience of time is a key feature of the piece, diversely perceived from the audience and the performers.
