Lab with Mirjam Sögner
In preparation to the premiere of the piece "Speaking Volumes" (13.6. Sophiensäle) this workshop evening offers the opportunity to experience the work from within and to literally immerse in the foamy landscapes and piles of foils of the scenography. The participants are being guided to try out practices from the working-process that allow them to be WITH the materials rather than change or impose on them. The evening is an invitation to move in order to relate to our surrounding form ever-changing perspectives, to listen to affect and to sync with geological times scales.
Level open | 18:00-21:00 | The number of participants is limited – so please register here: firstname.lastname@example.org
About the piece
"Speaking Volumes" tells about evolving landscapes and the role of the human within these geological processes. Three performers encounter mountains of foam, rocks and plastic-foils, they leave traces in the masses and adapt themselves to the reliefs. It is an evening that experiments with poetic tales of geological time and lets the non-human have their say.

Mirjam Sögner studied contemporary dance and choreography in Vienna and at Artez Arnhem / Netherlands. Her work is deeply rooted in movement-research and the post-human discourse. A recurring question is how technology changes and informs our physical experience of the world. Her pieces toured through Europe, Canada and Australia. Her debut Solo LARA was selected by the Aerowaves Network as one of the most promising new-comer works in 2016.
