In the frame of Criss-Crossing Encounters 2021
We are looking for dancers who are interested in a process which will begin as a workshop and will evolve into a series of site based investigations. We invite participants to apply in small pods if possible, to expand the process of the research also beyond the workshop. Together we will create a series of local / live feed / digital events that will expand our choreographic research with an international community.
We will research how embodied embryological knowledge can grow a dance that transforms the way we, performers and audience alike, experience our own bodies/selves/environment. We will use touch and movement as a doorway into our embryological history. Embryogenesis is an adventure we all undertook to become who we are. The first eight weeks after conception is when our body forms its basic structure. In this period, we transform from a fertilized egg into two cells that multiply into a cluster of cells, which develop into a series of fluid spaces that become a highly differentiated human being. These fluid spaces and processes underlie our current structure and inform our current state of being. This is action-oriented artistic research of recovering the potential space of the embryo that has yet to be lived, in each of us.
This artistic research will feed into the project of Olive Bieringa & Otto Ramstad “A Collection of Fluid Spaces”, a radical embryology laboratory which they are building for the medical galleries at the Norsk Teknisk Museum in Oslo in April 2021.
