S-04 / Bodyfrequencies
Doris Uhlich, Boris Kopeinig
In the frame of Sommer Tanz 2020 - Update coming 5.6.20!
Choreographer Doris Uhlich and DJ Boris Kopeinig have been working together since 2014. Two different musical biographies and a common interest in the physical effects of sound is what the two will share with the workshop participants. The focus of the workshop is on their current research, as well as on the one of recent years: a philosophy of flesh, the body as the epicenter of action and change, the relationship between duration and movement, exhaustion and charging, the archaeology of energy, the concept of ‘Energetic Icons‘. Energy transmissions among each other and with the space can be experienced. The four days offer insight into different waveforms, of sound waves and body waves, of interpersonal waves and spatial flows, of intensities of physical and acoustic nature. All levels, all abilities, all ages, all genders! Every Body Welcome!

Boris Kopeinig is a media artist and DJ with a preference for technoid rhythms and synthetic frequency patterns. For him, techno is based on presumably ancient rituals that involve setting the body in vibration and changing the consistency of the body and perception.
