Time to Meet · Work in Progress with Miriam Jakob
A somatic encounter of zoo policy, research material and genesis myths.
Starting point of this work is a visit at the SenseLab (Montréal) and a research in the zoo of Louisville with the primatologist Dawn Prince-Hughes on the communication between humans and gorillas. On the basis of their field recordings and the experiences they have gathered, Miriam Jakob and Felix Classen test a new choreographic experimental arrangement. The myth of mimetic imitation, the interplay of difference and indistinguishability as well as the common use of technology are made sensory perceptible.
