Premiere: Sediments of an Ordinary Mind
Weld Company / Choreography: Michael Kliën
"A thought is a physical act." In 2004 Klien choreographed Sediments of an Ordinary Mind, one his seminal
works capable of learning, growing and evolving. For and through Weld Company, this work is reincarnated in its contemporary form. The dancers' stream of consciousness is manifesting in dance, for the audience to explore the
'maps and mazes' of a world in its becoming.
