a silent, intimate performance
a naked body without a face
the skin is screaming a poem

so close, so intimate and yet untouchable
“Lostbox” arises from a fascination with a man, the body as shape and what goes on in that shape, the thoughts and feelings. “Lostbox” is a game between the verbal and non-verbal language, about what words and actions – sometimes ambiguous – can mean. Limited to one position and an abstract, strange shape the body is slowly becoming visible, while words disappear into nothingness.
Marie Goeminne is a Belgian choreographer and performer. She makes performances on the cutting edge of dance, philosophy and fine art. In her work, Marie is moved by our most intimate and vulnerable issues and qualities.
In 2005 she realized “Lostbox”, as part of a trilogy around fear, surrender and desire. In this collaboration with her sister and writer Siska Goeminne, the bond between Word and the wordless, is almost literally embodied. The movement-idiom by Marie is minimal. With hushed, concentrated movements, with sound and projection, as in a sculpture series, she lets the body speak.
