Alexandra Bachzetsis: Chasing a Ghost

In "Chasing a Ghost", Alexandra Bachzetsis continuously creates a double — a double body, a double sound, a double space, a double image. Challenging the choreographic archetype of the duet, "Chasing a Ghost" stages these doubles within a spectrum of violence and desire. Central to this duality, a double in itself, is the notion of the uncanny: an estranging phenomenon in a seemingly ordinary context, but also the potential act of transgression as our repressed impulses and subconsciousness may at any time rupture into our experience of reality.

"Chasing a Ghost" encompasses a choreography for five dancers (including the artist herself), an original music score played live by two pianists, and a stage setting that shifts between live movement and moving image. These elements are in constant relationship, but the connections between them are intentionally disturbed. Bachzetsis transforms the duet into an unsettling image, the movement between two bodies a distressing and unexpected occurrence, a perpetual "folie-à-deux" that challenges how we look at ourselves and others.
