Nótt is s set of personal stories, originating from the same emotion, what they have in common is a feeling of a summer night. Nótt is an impression, a song, a smell, Nordic goddess, a nocturne. Movement arises from a moment of silence, from physical memory, drawing an image in the space. A moment that has just passed reappears. Over and over again. Memory is storing images, body is storing emotions. Nothing that is produced by body can be determined anymore – everything needs to be found, invented anew; to recognize a smell of the movement, a breath of light, a temperature of sound. Impossible images merge on the paths that are promptly blurred, while imprints remain toned inside of the body like a memory: between pulsation and extension.

My neck hurts, I squeeze my forehead, I feel dry air in my throat …
