A durational piece that spans over three hours. The audience is invited to view it at their own pace.
ALITY comes from an enduring question about the possibilities of subversion/utopia. We choose to work in the realm of possibles from which concrete instances come into being. The piece is an experiment in indeterminacy, thin images that appear unbidden and glide between the lines of common readability offering spaces for the imagination to exercise.
The bodies are on par with the space as a material available for negotiation. The possibility is for all present elements to offer their energetic subtexts. The performers do not compose, they practice, and in the eschewal of a rationalist determination, new longed for sensations and spaces appear. There is no fiction, no predefined images. Not unlike the experience of staring into the tarot or a kaleidoscope, ALITY is a space of spaces that unfolds the more it is attended to.

At Charlottenborg we offer a version of ALITY which is particular to the given space and the bodies present.
The team behind ALITY and the partnering bodies
In 2015 the Danish duo two-women-machine-show began their collaboration with British actor Jonathan Bonnici. Together they premiered the work TRANS- at Bora Bora’s platform New Nordic Dances. TRANS- has been shown in Denmark, Hungary and Norway and was selected for Berliner Festspiele’s Stückemarkt programme. This year TRANS- is included in the exhibition Welt Ohne Aussen curated by Tino Sehgal and Thomas Oberender at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin.
