Dance Capsule 02
Through various artistic mediums, Alle Dicu explores situations in which music appears to affect behaviour, hence affecting the space. Her works have been included in various exhibitions and publications. She is currently living and working in Bucharest.
A dérive is a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiences. Dérives involve play, full-constructive behavior and awareness of psychogeographical effects, and are thus quite different from the classic notions of journey or stroll.
In a dérive one or more persons during a certain period drop their relations, their work and leisure activities and all their other usual motives for movement and action and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there .
The terrain provides the visual and palpable surface of action, but also the conditions favorable to direct living. Direct, in this case, is an unstructured potential, an instable combination between happy and sad which exists precisely through this instability.
Every cloud engenders not a storm . Any space engenders not just a possibility of experience but a multitude of situations which appear or not depending on the way we choose to materialise our desires. Spaces are dancefloors waiting for the drop in order to exist.
While being deep inside into music one can perhaps feel what it is like to go on a dérive, to have space open up to you and to be able to set or find your own order into a surface which is not yours.
