2020| pedagogue

Current Duration: 2.5 - 3 hours







Some keywords: digital perspectives, interfaced collective swarming, body-mind consciousness, site-specific

A physical.universe.self workshop format with a city tour - focusing on the relationship with technology , space & un-stereotyped-body movements , where a collective.self formed with the workshop-participants swarm through a street way expressing the collective energy through a walking dance to entangle with the transiting energy of the city  thereby aiming to create an energetic harmonizing dance marathon.

The workshop participants explore their relationship with the body & the space consciously guided through performative movements, sometimes alone, sometimes in pairs and together in a group.
Participants have an access to a phone (with live stream app) to explore different perspectives one has towards looking at the city they are "dancing" with -like this the workshop emphasizes on the multi-perspective view of the city by creating a live-streamed audio-video output of the workshop.

The focus is to expand the understanding of one's own body.self in relationship to it's self.self, the digital.self and to every living & non-living body.self perceived by that fractional collective.self.
The audience is free to join the hwole jounrey or meet at hte destignated spots to join the "marathon"
Some thoughts: Going through the city, feeling your Individual.Self through the different spaces, Collective.Self(s), that is like going together, forming a swarm through the city spreading energy, we will go from spot to spot, body awareness in the space, in the space the body is moving through, having a more perceivable relationship with the space, especially in the city, it is like a marathon but like a sensational and perceivable marathon of the structure in which the own Self resides in, swarming with different Self(s), which forms Collective.Self(s) through the space public spaces in the city.
