In 'Closed-Circle' two women are occupying a space, where they simultaneously perform various acts as desynchronized response to one another. Their movements are filled with emotional directness in complex, ever changing collages of facial expressions and bodily positions that lay the human condition and interactions bare.
The idea of the piece evolves around the feeling of restlessness, and being trapped at one point in life, and the urge to break the flow of that circular sequence. The movement is dissociated from its original meaning, by which the system in which it normally functions is exposed and deconstructed. Thus, revealing an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities, sexuality and privacy of the space we inhibit.
