Performance with Juli Reinartz
A metaphor with good intentions, an attempt with powerless means.
A body gets portrayed while dancing. The movie zooms in and out and registers all anatomical and performative details. The camera turns the body into microscopic material, flickering images, alien posture and moving pixel. But the camera actually does not exist: It is just the model for the audience´s perspective. It opens up the body for being both – modifiable material and desiring subject. Along the way Juli Reinartz´ solo becomes a secret duet with the audience. It turns cyborgfeminist and searches the techno body for what becomes possible, technically and socially. Here it encounters the most important question: how does it all feel like?

Juli Reinartz studied philosophy, dance and choreography. Between 2012 and 2013, she researched within a one-year residency at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm on the concert format as choreography. The piece cycle that is connected to that includes the pieces We are not in this together yet (2011), Atlantic (2013) and Really Good Music (2014) and was shown at numerous international festivals and venues. Her latest solo ‘You said you’d give it to me – soon as you were free’ is an exploration on cyborgfeminism and premiered in September 2016 at MDT Stockholm. In spring 2017, it travelled to Dansstationen (SE), Atalante (SE) and Something Raw / Frascati (NL). Further information: julireinartz.org
