«Aeon» is the new project by artist and choreographer Moritz Majce and artist and writer Sandra Man. Following on from «Choros» (2016-2018) and «Chora» (2019), it continues their joint exploration of the nexus humanity, technology, and nature, and concludes their space myths trilogy, inspired by names in ancient mythology.
Aeon is the other Greek god of time. Unlike Chronos, he does not embody time’s passing but the temporal concepts of eternity and contemporaneity. In science, the geological periods of time were named after Aeon – the history of the earth is divided into aeons.
In Moritz Majce’s and Sandra Man’s «Aeon» everything takes place outside: in patches of wasteland and urban nature, in described and filmed landscapes. The outside space comes to the fore, the human bodies are let into it. They do as little as is necessary for the environment itself to emerge. The space becomes wide, open, strange. Where do we live?
“Aeon” is a contemplative trip through real landscapes and imaginary pictures. One is on the road for several hours, the work intervenes in the perception of time and space. From journeys and stays, choral movements and embodied texts, a common unknown territory in the here and now is formed for performers and audience.
Moritz Majce works on special audience spaces: new forms of encounter between the work and the observer. His means are space-forming objects, videos, and choreographies for performers.
Sandra Man works on spatializing texts: embodied in choreographies and performances, with sound added in videos, or spoken in audio installations.
In 2015, Majce and Man started cooperating on creating spatial choreographies – mobile sur-roundings consisting of the equal elements: performers, objects, video images, texts, and visitors.
