Jefta van Dinther (Sweden) - Dark Field Analysis

Dark Field Analysis calls upon the intensity of being alive by placing us humans in relation to other forms of life. A long conversation unfolds between two naked men on a carpet; the topic of blood running as a red thread throughout the performance. Dark Field Analysis draws its name from a branch of alternative medicine that uses microscopy to diagnose systemic bodily conditions originating in the blood. But the conversation between the two men encompasses more than medical facts. Here, blood serves as an analogy for looking inwards and outwards: into and beyond our selves.

The men talk about their lives, how they function in today's society. To tell their stories, they use their bodies to their utmost capacity. Not only movement and gesture, but also the voice, to speak and to sing, and the power of the human gaze. “Without doubt the best that Van Dinther has made. An existential duet of two performers with a stunning stage presence”, writes Dagens Nyheter.
