The Bodhi Project is an Austrian company composed by Six performers of five different nationalities. They came to Vitlycke – Centre for Performing Arts to work with choreographer Francesco Scavetta to create a new performance titled “All I know of which I am not thinking”.
With costumes and set design straight out of the 70s, partly kitsch tiki lounge, partly Wes Anderson film set, “All I know of which I am not thinking” takes us to places comforting and strange. The work is bizarre yet familiar: offbeat, funny and poetic. The piece explores, in a peculiar blend of politics, poetics and humour, the notion of truth and falsehood in theatre and everyday experience, bringing forward an investigation started with the performance “Hardly Ever”.
The project identifies the theme of lying as iconic and relevant on both a socio-political and personal level and the interweaving of semantics and performativity is central in the work.
The performers on stage continuously manipulate their fictional worlds and creations addressing the audience with verbal statements that are both personal and surreal. By naming and renaming their actions and the physical landscapes they create, the dancers aim in engaging audience personal associations, while challenging their perceptions.
It’s all about believing and making believe, even just for a few instants. It’s an inner guessing game. It’s about creating expectations and triggering empathy, while allowing the unexpected. The result is subtly political, joyful and timely.
