The impacts of forces are inevitable and constant. Everybody is set in motion, everything is affected. At the same time, the force itself is never visible. It is the signs, traces and remains of it, that produce visible marks, from which we draw conclusions and imagine the force behind it.

The Visible Effects of Force is a charged solo about force that explores what remains in the body after the impact -the traces, the effects.

It is the conclusion and third part of an artistic exploration by Marie Topp of the body exposed to different forces. The trilogy of solos include the pieces "The Everyday Practice of Resistance" (2012) and "Forerunning" (2014). ¨
