The project encourages intercultural dialogue by exchanging visions and methodologies through the work. The final act will be the result of the collision and interaction of artists representing different fields and different ways to perceive and use art.
2 performers/dancers: Aleksandra Osowicz (PL), Valentina Parlato (IT)
2 media artists: Patrick K.-H.(RU) , Oleg Makarov (RU)
Method: The project will be approached from three perspectives:
Bodily Practices: Bodily practices are aiming at preparing the body to swiftly change and/or become equally aware of the imaginary and the real.
Image Work: The aim is to recognize the shifts in bodily presences caused by thoughts, incentives desires and intentions, and create a choreographic structure. The goal is, therefore, to bring on stage a continuously transforming body, that expands beyond its known literal meaning construction.
Soundscape: The microphones and amplifiers aim at capturing the movement and body. They are a tool for bringing the inner to the outside and amplifying the unseen functions of the body. And on the other way around – bringing outside to the inside and thus control the course of actions.
The aim of the project is to intertwine movement practices and live video work/live music to create a journey leading under the surface of the what is visible, and thus to expand the body ‘as we know it’ into a network of unfamiliar potentialities.
The project would result in a full-evening presentation, that would combine visual arts practices with performance art, designing its own space for presentation, yet working with live bodies and actions.
Premiere: 12th of October, Avant Art Festival, Wrocław.
