body/material is a dramaturgy of dances or exercises on (altered) physical states, where dance is intended primarily as a movement of attention and a technology of ecstasy, done alone, alone-together and together-together. The work happens in contained frames that allow departure, investigation and integration, use chi cultivation techniques, touch and consent practices, improvisation as mind-set and queer magic as the invisible thread.

DildoTechnoTonics (a technology of ecstasy)

DildoTechnoTonics hybridises post Contact Improvisation body play with Paul B. Preciado’s contra-sexual inversion practice Dildotectonics. “Within the heteronormative regime, the term Dildotectonics describes deviant and ‘non-normal’ uses of the individual body or a practice, where several bodies make gender or have sex with dildos.” (Paul B. Preciado) Our shared research will be based on a performance for a dance floor by Lecken Berlin.

ARTISTBIO: Maria F. Scaroni

Maria F. Scaroni is a dance artist. She interprets choreographic works, creates dances and hosts dance workshops. Trained independently, moved to Berlin in 2004, where she works as a freelance dancer, she created/performed works with Jess Curtis, Jeremy Wade, Frank Willens, Tino Sehgal, Vania Rovisco/AADK, (a.o.). Since 2011 Maria collaborates with Meg Stuart/Damaged Goods (Until Our Hearts Stop, Sketches/Notebook, Built To Last), sharing with Meg and part of the Berlin dance community, the commitment to improvisation as a performance event (City Lights, Auf den Tisch!, Politics of Ecstasy). Her choreographic works focus on the process of collaboration, play with durational experiences and are featured by a crossbreeding between performance, choreography and installation. Maria teaches in Berlin's Universities HZT and Bard College and is involved in independent training programs (in Berlin, P .O.R.C.H. and ROAR). Since 2017 she is resident choreographer and member of the party collective Lecken Berlin, an erogenous femme forward rave.
