Marie Topp: The Visible Effects of Force
The impacts of forces are inevitable and constant. Everybody is set in motion, everything is affected. At the same time, the force itself is never visible. It is the signs, traces and remains of it, that produce visible marks, from which we draw conclusions and imagine the force behind it.
The Visible Effects of Force is a charged solo about force that explores what remains in the body after the impact -the traces, the effects.
“The Visible Effects of Force” is a choreographic project initiated by Danish choreographer Marie Topp in a collaboration with sound artist Julia Giertz and light designer Mårten K Axelsson. It is the conclusion and third part of an artistic exploration of the body exposed to different forces. The trilogy of solos include the pieces “The Everyday Practice of Resistance” (2012) and “Forerunning” (2014). ¨
