Running time: 55 minutes Suitable for all Performing with a Persian carpet, Maria arranges her movement as an investigation of fluid sculptural process. The carpet – originally a kind of grounding frame for the dance – becomes, variously, a prop, an outer skin, architecture. These shifts describe the negotiation of desire in a dancing figure approaching visibility, and connect with the material of a defining sculptural ground. This desire manifests itself as a changing temporal process, as complex and interwoven as the many patterns in the carpet. Gazing at this exquisitely designed living sculpture, you also feel your own body straining with Hassabi, and in the slow friction between these two views, mysterious emotions ignite. The Village Voice Nottdance returns as one of Europe's leading festivals, known for its innovative and entertaining programme and always with the question 'What can dance be?'
