A DRIVE TOWARD EPICNESS. A collision of souls. Los Ninjas are ruling the game. At the edge of the cliff, they search for the ultimate state of presence, with their bodies as weapons, a taste of blood in their mouth, they are ready to kill and heal and trespass. Commitment is in the heart and printed on the skin.
Matter of Blood was born in collaboration with the french dancer and clothes maker Lea Kieffer. In the last 3 years, they have developed together “The ninja Practice”. This practice goes beyond the fictional characters who practice it and their obsession with struggle and risk. Through tasks, scores, habits, tastes these characters navigate between realness and fiction.
Like in a Tarantino Movie, the ninjas explore a whole range of physical contact ans ways of relating, unfolding the chapters of a non-lineal narrative. The ninjas prepare their body-mind for a state of readiness, listening to the performative potential of immediacy and improvisation. The practice evolves as ninjas continue meeting each other and practice in different situations, constellations and geographic locations.
