(The) Capture is a dance-performance based on the form of a Research. It follows the stages of a Research, starting gradually from the broad review of its context, continuing with the data gathering, the specification of the research field, the experimentation in identifying modifications-to and impact on, existing knowledge structures / factual frameworks of the research subjects, in our case each one of us.

Five dancers explore their common reality from their own perspectives, creating thereby a case for the audience. It is, in its essence, a work about the concept of one becomes aware of its condition, free from any emotional subjective justifications, not any justifications whatsoever, and it is this exact knowledge s/he ultimate transmits. The audience in this piece set in a position of receiving a kaleidoscopic pattern of information, which potentially adjuncts to a number of different hypotheses.

capture // the act of taking and holding someone as a prisoner or of being taken as a prisoner
capture // the act of getting control of something
capture // the act of putting information in a form that a computer can use or read
