Philipp GehmacherPractice and theory of the body in motion and stillness
A workshop on movement and meaning
A two days workshop on the body-in-motion, on moving by ourselves and with others. A workshop on movement and meaning, be it retrieved through everyday actions, skills of embodiment or touch and interaction.
We will try to analyse the body-in-motion in practice through confronting movement and action with concepts of space, issues of temporality and philosophical ideas on understanding this body-in-motion.
Where and when does composition start to take place? Who is in charge of this composition and how do I control what I express or represent?
From sensory touch to overpowering interaction, from holding motion to holding stillness, from head to toe, from right here to over there, from the quotidian to the artefact, from myself to the other.
