Work "traps" finds itself between the wet walls, inhabited by mediated identity that foregrounds the unknown territories of its being. The body functions through mannerisms and ways of communication, searching for emergence of physicality. Like a reflection of a sudden diagram between fiction and reality, territories constantly (re)create us by adopting different fictions. "traps" falls into the intimate within estrangement and dares to gaze back to reflect its own sociality.

"traps" is a microscopic and explorative landscape for traps – movements and thoughts in which we stumble upon, even though we have the best of skills and intentions. In the struggles to extricate ourselves from the areas - 'traps' seeks to capture an absent image and trace our forgotten belongings. 'traps' is a trapping pulse and a raw meat programmed to consume. It’s a place where drugs and identities are sold and dissolved. It’s a tongue hole, person’s dirty mouth and also a two-wheeled carriage pulled by a horse. It travels, restricts, attrapts, pokes, and strokes our presence while we’re caught in our own traps.

Johhan Rosenberg (1997) is an Estonian choreographer and artist working in the fields of dance and performance art. With a background of dance and music studies, he graduated in 2020 choreography studies in School for New Dance Development. He has presented works in Amsterdam (Frascati theatre, Dansmakers, Veem House for Performance), Moscow (ZIL), Riga (Curving the Dance), St.Petersburg (SDVIG), Berlin (Studio dB), and Tallinn (EKA Gallery, EKKM, ULM, and Kanuti Gildi SAAL) and has also participated in several projects as a dancer and dramaturg.

The choreographic haunting of his work constructs environments and artefacts of movement, mediated through the self and the gaze of the public. Seeking for the unknown environments and pluralism of characters - in his practice, the functionalities of language and identities become embodied contexts towards the process of creating surroundings. Through raw vocabulary and playfulness, he layers body, text, and sound to meet-cross in the architecture of collective consciousness. He received the Estonian Theatre Prize Dance Award 2022 with Jette Loona Hermanis for their performance "Eden Detail"
