a proposition by Jeanne-Salomé Rochat
performed by Fabian Barba, Franziska Aigner, Tuur Marinus, Gabriel Schenker and Marisa Cabal.

As soon as the given constellation of bodies on stage gets off-balance, this very opening motion continues passing on throughout the entire length of the performance. One body propels the next, impulse after impulse, accident after accident. The Way Things Wait pictures both a relentless catastrophe and a complexly designed machinery in which the forces of nature are compelled to do the work.

The piece exploits the productivity of self-imposed constraints, triggering the fabrication of surprising connections and new combinations. Choreography turns into step-by-step problem solving, when each constellation of bodies conditions the possibilities for the next movement.
