Sriwhana Spong, Im Wintergarten, choreographed by Benjamin Ord, danced by Michael-John Harper and Benjamin Ord, live music played and composed by Antonia Barnett-McIntosh, DAAD Galerie, Berlin, 2016

Im Wintergarten explores the dynamics of seduction, where the simultaneous act of attention and withdrawal inscribes a rhythm of opening and closing, of entrapment and reverie. It proposes this notion of reverie as a radical refusal of the socialised body. The five sections of the choreographic structure borrow their format from a classical grand pas de deux which is re-configured for a gallery setting via two contemporary queer bodies.
