Pure form cannot exist by itself. It has to be held in some kind of material or energetic basis. Literally to ’inform’ means ’to put form into’ something. Even our sense impressions, emotions and thoughts has been found to be carried by physical and chemical processes taking place in the nervous system and the brain. - David Bohm proposes in his essay Meaning and Information.
In_form is a movement-based performance that uses amplified breathing sounds and stays on the very edge of visibility. It asks you to listen. How informative a simple breath can be?
The figure of the performance stays in the constant flux of becoming. He senses and picks up various modalities of beings and states from inner and outer spaces. Transformation happens on it’s own accordance as it is being consciously manipulated as well. On the edge of visibility, he examines the contours of understanding, he stays in potentiality. Yet, he is only a shadow of himself.
in_form invites the audience to the grey zone of intentions. How does the imagined relate to the manifested? How do we breathe our desires and ideas into life? How do we feel in the presence of our dreams?
