KINISI is a new choreographic project focused on embodied sensemaking and choreographic knowledge.
In Practice Is Practice, three innovative choreographers will share their dance practice on Katharina Grosse’s gigantic artwork and dance floor at camping East. Dance sessions will take place over three consecutive days in a format where everybody can join regardless of previous dance experience.
A dance practice, within contemporary dance, entails a specific way of moving and informing the body, which creates a situation and a habitat for the body to explore.
You can look forward to the following sessions:
26 June 11:00-12:00 – Here and There by Tim Matiakis
Here and There is based on translating sensory information into movement to create a frame for dancing to be experienced through. The always present sensations of the body guide this practice, which is occupied with the experience of movement, rather than the produced movement itself.
Tim Matiakis is a dancer, choreographer and curator based in Copenhagen. In his work, he explores the experiential capacities of choreography and dance and the physical relations that can be created through the act of moving.
27 June 11:00-12:00 – The Last Dance You Will Ever Do by Rachel Tess
The Last Dance You Will Ever Do will investigate the fictional frame of your last ever dance. Together with participants, Tess will lead a warm-up characterised by dynamic shifts in physicality and rhythm, opening up for individual interpretations of what each person would do for their ‘last dance ever’. All participants need to bring is their experiences with dance whether it is dancing alone out of sight, at a club surrounded by many, in a dance class at the local community center, or as a professional.
Rachel Tess, artistic director of MARC, is a choreographer, dancer and curator based in Knislinge, Sweden. Her work stems from an interest in the interplay between bodies and place, from the architectural, political, and interpersonal to the ecological. Tess’ work is often placed outside the constructs of the traditional theatre setting and questions how we spend time with art and each other.
28 June 11:00-14:00 – Technosomatics by Frédéric Gies
Technosomatics is a meditation in movement that consists of an exploration of the endocrine glands and chakras by means of club dancing to techno with eyes closed.
This embodiment of the endocrine glands and chakras, through the act of club dancing, explores trance-like states of consciousness and acknowledges the healing potential of the act of dancing.
Frédéric Gies is a dancer and choreographer based in Sweden. In their work, they collapse the distinction between erudite and popular forms of dance. Their work is tightly connected to techno music.
