Open rehearsal – Der Klumpen
January 5 @ 18:30 - 19:30
“Sensing bodies in movement are not individual bodies; their individuations are always collective. They are worlding bodies that are one with the potential of movement. To become is to move toward something that is not yet.” – Erin Manning, Politics of Touch.
What can a pile of bodies do? Who does it become?
Der Klumpen is a proposal to create beauty out of the indistinguishable individual in the mass, only to carefully differentiate and distort perspectives between unison and differentiation, thing and human. Togetherness expands beyond the self. Philosophically it is a pile of parts, a worlding of relation, and a disassembling of the collective.
Hicks&Bühler is Laura Hicks and Hannah Shakti Bühler. Based in Frankfurt am Main, they began to collaborate on choreographic work in 2015 and premiered their inaugural work Reaching Towards… in the spring of 2017. Interested in the haptic and affected experience, they are exploring how bodies transmit, receive, and transform information when in proximity to the other. The goal is to have an artistic practice that pushes at the edges of what the body experiences; seeking the physical expression of meaning that exists only in motion. Hicks&Bühler are creating contemporary dance works that provoke philosophical inquiry through sensate bodies.
