Plesačica

U izvedbi Plesačica, Sujata Goel predstavlja fiktivnu verziju sebe, mitološku figuru nalik lutki koja otkriva sebe i stalno se mijenja – od slomljene do predivne lutke, od razigrane do usamljene lutke – da bi na kraju potpuno nestala i vratila se u uspavano nevidljivo stanje. Da bi stvorila Dancing Girl, Goel je klinički mapirala svoja psihička i psihološka ponašanja, dokumentirajući svoje kvalitete, raspoloženja, geste, navike i obrasce kretanja kako bi sebe iskusila kao podatak, informaciju kojom se može manipulirati i reorganizirati na nove načine. Dancing Girl opisuje izvođačicu koja želi izaći iz svog tijela te se suočiti sa slikom sebe.

Sujata Goel je plesačica s obrazovanjem u području  klasičnog indijskog plesa Bharatanatyam te suvremenog plesa. Diplomirala je 2001. na Umjetničkoj akademiji Kalakshetra – Rukmini Devi, a nakon toga je od 2000. do 2004. radila s koreografkinjom Padmini Chettur. Školovanje je u suvremenom plesu nastavila u P.A.R.T.S.-u (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios), Bruxelles, Belgija. Nakon diplomiranja je pozvana da se priključi WP Zimmeru, jednoj od vodećih belgijskih produkcijskih kuća za mlade koreografe u usponu, gdje je kao umjetnica na rezidenciji producirala tri djela: „Lady“, „Disco Dancer“ i „Nightfile“. Dancing Girl je stvorena uz podršku India Foundation of the Arts te istraživačke i produkcijske rezidencije u  Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts Research u Pondicherryju, Indija.

SUJATA GOEL

DANCING GIRL

In Dancing Girl, Sujata Goel presents a fictional character version of herself, a mythical doll‐like figure who reveals herself and continually morphs―from broken doll to beautiful doll to dancing doll to a lonely doll―finally disappearing completely and returning to a dormant invisible state. To create Dancing Girl, Goel clinically mapped out her physical and psychological behaviors by documenting her qualities, moods, gestures, habits, and movement patterns in order to experience herself as data, as information that could be manipulated and reorganized to take on new meanings. Dancing Girl depicts a performer who seeks to step outside of her body and confront the image of herself.

Sujata Goel is a dancer trained in classical Bharatanatyam and contemporary dance. She graduated from Kalakshetra (Rukmini Devi College of Fine Arts) in 2001 and worked with Chennai‐based choreographer Padmini Chettur from 2002 to 2004. She continued her training in contemporary dance at P.A.R.T.S in Brussels. After she graduated, she was an artist‐in‐residence at WP Zimmer, where she produced three works: Lady, Disco Dancer, and Nightlife. Dancing Girl was created with support from the Indian Foundation of the Arts and a research and production residency at the Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts Research in Pondicherry, India.
