Ausschnitte aus der Performance
Jess Curtis, Claire Cunningham
In the frame of Open Spaces#2-2016
Claire Cunningham and Jess Curtis investigate the role of movement and sensory dynamics in the perception and performance of otherness. It is a dance, a song, a story, a sculpture, a play, a fight, a journey to be sung, spoken, seen, felt, heard, read, viewed, approved (or disproved!) by Gravity artistic director Jess Curtis and Scottish self-identified disabled performer and choreographer Claire Cunningham as lead artists, in collaboration with renowned philosopher of perception Dr. Alva Noë. The sharing will show mid-stages of research for a new full-evening duet to premiere on November 2nd, 2016 at Tanzfabrik. A conversation with Alva Noë takes place 14th July.
