A window into the dialogue of creation
The starting idea for Still was to research into the performance of improvisation through a series of Konjar’s residencies with different collaborators. The subject of the research was that place of arrival, where the need for change vanishes and a place of “stillness” is established. In words of the author: “With collaborators we observed the dual role of protagonists, who are for each other simultaneously both performers as well as spectators. Then we worked on the mechanics of bringing this process closer to the audience, who are witnessing it for the first time.”
In collaboration with the long-time friend and colleague Martin Kilvady the process grew further, to the point of allowing for the spectator to embrace the proposal as a whole. While offering an insight into the dialogue taking place during the process of creation.
