Magdalena Chowaniec & Valerie Oberleithner
An intergenerational workshop for Internet junkies of all ages, gender and abilities and their families
Not sure how to sense the "Here and Now" after a long WhatsApp session? Feeling disembodied? Is your mobile phone becoming your rescue life jacket for the "chaos" of a daily life? Is your mobile making you immobile? If you recognise yourself living with your mobile phone as a prolongation of "self", always standing between you and your beloved ones, if your phone is becoming your best companion while your dreams of the adventure, exploration and changing the world get flushed down the toilet because of a Netflix Show – this workshop is for you and your family*.
How can we help our body to regain autonomy, trust and active participation in the world? How can we develop a body re-relating to its technical surrounding and the power structures existing behind it? How can we reconquer immidiacy of our actions?
iChoreography works with the body in the first place. It re-choreographs the body to initiate changes in the society and to enhance its flow. In their workshop choreographers Magdalena and Valerie, share with the participants the physical principles discovered through contemporary dance and choreography. With the help of these practices, iChoreography aims to unmask the power structures behind technical devices and to re-create a body capable to act and re-act "freely" while facing the overwhelming stream of information. Through these physical practices, we can find new forms of healing, we increase our sensory scale of awareness lost in the course of body’s virtual visits and improve our life within the virtual and the analogue community.
The class is open to all ages, genders, forms, colours, shapes, beings dealing with Internet addiction and interconnected oppression, feeling of isolation, high anxiety, jumpiness.
