Kinetic Augmentations configures choreography for a female dancing body in correspondence with The House of Dust and with the MAK Center at the Schindler House. Drawing from her dance practice, Djordjevich developed a choreographed code, assigning a body part to a letter, to ‘read’ the original poem used by Knowles. Djordjevich self-imposes the task of repeatedly and compulsively moving each body part in a loop, morphing movement through the sequence of the poem. This perpetual action is in negotiation of the past, present and future. How is a dancer simultaneously a material, site/situation and inhabitant? The dance is an attempt at the here-and-now and a reimagining of a female dancing body, its potential, what it represents and how it exists.
