    18 June, 7pm, Secession Wien

Six dancers move at a measured pace. They morph their bodies at imperceptible velocities, appearing in various constellations amongst one another and throughout the space as they alternate between representation and abstraction. Subtle lighting changes imitating the natural shifts of daylight along with a metrical sound score accentuate the unbroken time. Commissioned by the Wiener Festwochen and the Vienna Secession, the live installation HERE occurring during the Secession’s opening hours invites visitors to share the main exhibition hall with the performers. Since the early 2000s, Maria Hassabi has carved a choreographic practice that concentrates on stillness, slowness, and the in-betweenness of bodies in motion. Shepherding the strategies and languages of dance into the spaces of visual art across the globe, Hassabi decelerates movement to the point where it touches upon the definitions of sculpture and image, testing the conventional rhythms of viewership. As the ‘now’ slides into the boundless, the ‘here’ becomes the focus.
