Inaccessible deals with everything that remains beyond thoughts, under the skin, in the silent interpretations of events, feelings, desires and urges; with what we would sometimes gladly bury somewhere deep and far away, where it would invisible, and sometimes pull out from deep inside us to rot in the light of the day and remind us of its presence.
The leitmotif and starting point of this work is the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice; the notion of the „underground“ in arts and our own attempts to give the idea of the „underground“ a personal intepretation and meaning. Is the „underground“ a murky torrent of the subconscious/unconscious, something with a ring of objectionable and inacceptable, or is it seemingly banal facts, like tissue under the skin – muscles, blood vessels, bones, nerves…?
Through the conflict between Eros and Thanatos, we explore the binarities of animate/inanimate, corporeal/incorporeal, in front/behind, past/future. These oppositions are what this dance piece tackles, trying to find a way out of the underground, and hoping that the inaccessible can lose the „in“.
