STRETCH is a collaboration between the choreographer Isabella Soupart and the British visual artist Jonathan Sullam.
A group of dancers will take turns in a test of physical, rhythmic and enchanting endurance from 18:00 to 00:00 on 3, 10, 17 and 24 May, performing and reinterpreting a series of existing truly trance dances from pop culture. In this work in progress for several dancers, each artist immerses themselves in a foreign world, absorbing it, subtracting from it, adding to it, working it until they appropriate it. Visitors enter and leave as they wish over a period of six hours, deciding for themselves how long their personal experience lasts.
