23.10.2021 | How to be terrestrial? A movement-based experiment
Online | ZKM
Free of charge
From the age of 16 up. Registration possible until the evening before, limited number of participants.
What happens if we answer to the complex and global questions of our time through improvised movement?
The exhibition »Critical Zones. Observatories for Earthly Politics«
is full of with multilayered questions and concepts like the
»Terrestrial« or »Gaia«. We will approach these topics by reading them
as instructions for movement – how will our bodies respond? And how can
we decipher these responses? And how can we investigate embodiment if we
meet virtually? The aware perception and movement of our bodies is a
valuable source of knowledge and creativity! With the help of
choreographic and performative tools as well as with a playful look at
digital formats and online communication, we will improvise and learn
together. No previous experience is necessary at all, just a desire to
move and experiment!
This workshop is part of a series of online
and offline workshops. You can book individual workshops, but you are
invited to join multiple sessions, since they will build upon each
other. Due to the improvised nature of the experiments each workshop
will offer new experiences and an in depth understanding of the
You need at home: paper, pen and a little bit of space to move. Digital requirements: internet
access, video conferencing capability (computer camera and microphone).
The workshop will be hosted on zoom. We will send you the Zoom link
shortly before the workshop begins.
