In her solo, no, plural performance, Artémise Ploegaerts questions the potential (and singular) expression of her cultural identity within the songs chosen and the movement performed. She looks at the dis/embodiment of experiences made by listening to songs. Habits, memories, and learning come together allowing her to subjectively create movement. Movement is here seen as the possibility for experiences to come through the body. It is able to create different bodily textures, different bodies. Her dance was not set into a movement vocabulary. She selected several songs to repetitively dance on. Her choice was based on sounds that are familiar to her, and that also relate to what she ‘likes’ to move on or on the contrary that challenge her physical reactions.
Although habits and physiology remain, some bodily conditions and reactions have changed during the process, witnessing a certain changeability of the body. Some sounds have been easier to embody than others. She investigates the notion of identity by suggesting its reliance to the body’s permeability and its constant becoming.
