THE DISTANT BODY

THE DISTANT BODY

THE DISTANT BODY

Dance research labs with people 60+

As part of the multi-year artistic stage, outreach and research project THE EMPATHIC BODY by choreographer Silke Z. and her ensemble die metabolisten, four dance labs for the generation 60+ will be offered in 2021 under the title THE DISTANT BODY.

The effects of the Corona pandemic, especially the distance regulations have changed the (performance) world. The use of Zoom etc. to “work further” in art assigns a new meaning to the body and the question of distance. Especially for the older generation, the awareness of distance has changed. What does distance mean today? Distance from one’s own body? What effects does distance have on movement? How do these developments affect relationships? What does social distancing mean in life, in old age and in a stage context?

In the laboratory situations, the participants research these questions in solos, duos and groups together with the choreographer and selected ensemble members for a week and bring the results to the stage of the ehrenfeldstudios in a final performance.

***In addition to the lab weeks, rehearsal and performance visits are planned as part of the ensemble’s artistic productions***

The project is funded by the Cultural Office of the City of Cologne, the Förderfonds Kultur und Alter of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia with the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (stage and research), Fonds Darstellende Künste (stage) and the Rheinenergie Stiftung Kultur (mediation). In cooperation with the theatre and media class of the Albertus Magnus Gymnasium, Cologne, Junges Schauspielhaus Bochum and Fokus Tanz, Munich.
