Ett verk som konstrueras mellan balettens kroppsliga ramverk, ett undvikande och tvetydigt subjekt, och ett musikaliskt partitur som börjar främlinggöra sig självt. Trevande, spekulativa, och utprövande förslag som diagramatiskt krashar olika material, initierar här en dialog mellan de tre.

I verket fungerar baletten både som ett system av symboler men även som ett ramverk för nya kroppsligheter. Istället för att ringa in balettens mittpunkt, försöker Sebastian Lingserius och Love Källman finna dess yttre gräns, och låta verket facilitera för åskådarens fråga: Vad och Var är baletten? Var går dess gräns, och om den inte finns, var är skuggan?

Detta är inte en annorlunda balett, utan en (av)vikande. En kropp som manövrerar alla sina riktningar, planlagd och inriktad men utan förut-bestämd representation. En återvändning till baletten där paradoxala logiker kollapsar. Ett efter-politiskt subjekt, som tycks kunna stå för allting.

”Vårt tredje alternativ är inte den ena eller den andra, utan båda!
Ett krig för kärlek, ett kärleksfullt krig, en kärlek till krig, krigen kärlek, leken krikä, kräken ke, äkenkren.”

A work constructed between the ballet’s bodily framework, an evasive and ambiguous subject, and a musical score that begins to alienate itself. Tentative and speculative proposals crashing various materials, and initiating a dialogue between the three.

In the piece, the ballet works both as a system of symbols, but also as a framework for new bodies. Instead of capturing the center of ballet, we try to find its external border and allow the work to facilitate for the viewer to ask: What and Where is ballet? Where is the limit, and if not, where is it´s shadow?

This is not another balett but rather a (de)-folding one. A body that operates all of its directions, planned and directed but without pre-determined representation. A return to ballet where paradoxical logics collapse. An after-political subject, which seems to stand for everything.

”Our third option is not one or the other, but both! A war for love, a loving war, a love for war, a waring love. A ring for love. lovar and wing, wloaevr.”

What if Ballet functions as the Big Other, for Dance?.

other, Other, Other


In 1955, Lacan draws a distinction between the ”little other” and the ”big Other” (”the Other”), a distinction which remains central throughout the rest of his work.

Little
The little other is the other who is not, in fact, other, but a reflection or projection of the ego.

Big
The big Other designates radical alterity, an otherness which transcends the illusory otherness of the imaginary because it cannot be assimilated through identification.  Lacan equates the big Other with language and the law, and hence the big Other is inscribed in the symbolic order.

In 1957 Lacan illustrates this incomplete Other graphically by striking a bar through the symbol A. Hence another name for the castrated, incomplete Other is the barred Other.
