Between control and uncertainty" is a practice-led research that combines the kinetic study of the body as a structure and the implementation of media and expanded choreography tools to de-pattern the conventional relationship between body and space in performative environments. Moreover, on a meta-level, the investigation reflects on the tension between control and uncertainty in the act of research itself. This inquiry started from my fascination for the kinetics of the body and its ability to reorganize itself in comparison with other structures that do not move that way. With the firm belief that the body has inherent knowledge which can be activated by experiencing and observing movement, and the aim to name that knowledge by comparing the body to micro and macro structures that do move differently, such as for example the microstructures of materials like metal, concrete, atoms, or the macrostructures built by the geography of the city and the Port of Rotterdam. The research has been framed under the inspirational umbrella of the idea of performing the Deleuzian concept of “becoming”, (deriving from the Latin verb “devenire” which means “coming down, falling in, arriving to”). The interdisciplinary research addresses the dichotomy structure-destructure and its application and affections to the body. In this sense, the research proposes a tool for de-patterning the habitual relationship between the body of the performer and the external space and offers to the audience a door for de-patterning their relationship with performative spaces. The inquiry is focused on the action of “falling in”, "devenire", as a physical door to the unknown. In concordance with the practice, the findings of this research can be seen as ways of controlling and ways of facilitating, allowing, provoking uncertainty within the choreographic practice-led research frame.
