Fragility and coherence, construction and deconstruction, boundaries and porosity – these apparent antagonisms are being analysed in Monika Dorniak’s The Amplification Of Fluctuations (2021) together with five dancers. In Dorniak’s  choreographed collective work, the interdisciplinary artist continues to search for solidarity in a pluralised society which is hyper-connected and, at the same time, increasingly separated. The dancers are intuitively de/-constructing the foundations of the human community throughout the performance and depict the anatomy of the ‘singular’ self which is formed by a variety of non-/ human agents. The transformable costume and stage design continues to play an essential role in Dorniak’s work and forms a moveable frame for the choreography. In her new work ‘The Amplification Of Fluctuations’ the moveable objects symbolise the essential, parallel running presence of boundaries and porosity in the formation of the self.
