In Landing on Feathers, three care workers and artists share their perspectives on embodied care-practices from a personal and collective experience.
In May 2021, choreographer Jija Sohn, performer Aleksandra Lemm, and researcher and dramaturge Julia Reist started a creative research trajectory in collaboration with artist Elmer Kouwenberg, whose body has been paralysed due to a car accident 28 years ago. The audience witnesses the interaction between their training in dance and the physicality of their engagement as Elmer’s caregiving team. Within the practice, limitations are not simply experienced, but deeply acknowledged throughout the trajectory, as an intrinsic part of the practice. During Beyond the Black Box, the artists share their research in a safe and intimate setting, inviting you to reflect on care, closeness and our relationship to the other.
There will be an invitation to take off your shoes and to partake in embodiment practices. You are free to choose whether or not to paricipate.
