Approximations #6

Ongoing practice by Martin Sonderkamp, Darko Dragičević
In the frame of Open Spaces#3-2017

Visual artist Darko Dragicevic and choreographer Martin Sonderkamp investigate the simultaneity of two processes: The unfolding of existing and absent space into a bodily interior and the simultaneous expansion and drawing of an inner space into a spatial exterior. On the basis of these reciprocal inscriptions, the performers negotiate potential spaces of interaction in which space and body are equal-ranking actors. Movement and visual language are divided into elementary, choreographic particles. The affective-sensory systems, developed on this basis, their different functions, as well as their placements in space are used as concrete forms for their visceral and visual dialogue.

Concept, performance: Darko Dragicevic, Martin Sonderkamp | Sound design: Tomas Wansing | Music: William Basinski (The Deluge) | A production by Collegium Hungaricum Berlin with Darko Dragicevic and Martin Sonderkamp, supported by TanzFaktur Cologne, JSKD Ljubljana.

In the frame of the dance campaign „Watch Me Dance“.
