"Bending the line" is a practice research where Kari Vig Petersen engages in movement practices that either supports a sensitive body or a tough body. By putting these different practices into her own body, she is asking if opposite movement practices and qualities can exist in one body. How does this body dance?
The interest lays in not wanting to choose either to be a sensitive dancer or a tough dancer. The wish is to own both oppositional qualities on the edges of the line. When the edges of the line are found, the exploration is to see if the line can bend into a circle. The hypotheses is that this circle will enrichen the dancing body.
In this practice research, there are two practices for the sensitive body and two for the tough. The Feldenkrais method, Gaga, The Ido Portal method and ballet. Through 6 weeks of physical work, Kari works her way through all these practices, and keeps a red thread by improvising a dance at the end of each day, as an answer to the bodily information.
By the end of the 6 weeks, the work is being presented for the public. The format of the presentation is a dancing lecture, where Kari shares through words and movement, what she has been researching.
