Marie-Lena Kaiser: Relevanter Körper
In the residency, the choreographer explores the concept of system relevance, which has been repeatedly thematized in the context of the Corona pandemic. In her work, in which she deals with themes such as authority and autonomy, she searches for the means to describe and analyze whether certain social moments are merely reproduced or whether they can possibly be subject to critical debate.
Josephine Kalies: Beschreiben des Ungreifbaren, Bestärken des Unsichtbaren
During the residency, Josephine Kalies concerned herself by means of physical encounters and scientific study with the tangibility and systems relevance of dance. Together with choreographer Marie-Lena Kaiser she investigates how the abstract and fleeting qualities of this form of art can be couched in language, contextualized and rendered fruitful for new visual formats.
The research project was supported by Verena Hahn:
