On a square stage enclosed by spectators, four bodies reconvene and communicate. They use a language formed by scored gestures and shifting constraints on the spoken word (sometimes scripted, sometime improvised). Some of the gestures are connected to violent images – slaps, punches, pushes. Others evoke intimacy – kisses, caressing, holding. Successive structures aim to explore and blur the lines between these gestures and the narrative images they produce through the following choreographic scores: repetition, individuated objectification, vocalization of desire, and physical improvisation. In To Kiss One Bite, Mora Vegesture seeks possible forms of communication that acknowledge the hurt, confusion and excitement brought up by the stories connected to contact while also questioning them – deconstructing them through observation rather than simply reproducing them. The aim is to create the space of a shared confusion and an investigation into the oscillation between our socially shaped identities and an emerging collective body.
