While space becomes fragmented, Marta researches around the ability of the body to become, through the simple act of falling into the unknown.
About the research
After two years of practice-led research framed within the Choreography Master program of Codarts and Fontys Universities, Marta finds herself in the final phase of her inquiry in which she will bring together her two lines of inquiry, the destructuration of the space through scenographic tools and its relation with the kinetics of the body. Below the inspirational umbrella of the idea of performing the Deleuzian concept of “becoming”, Marta addresses the dichotomy structure-destructure and its application and affections to the body.
Inspired by the Deleuzian concept of “becoming” (coming from the Latin verb “devenire” which means “coming down, falling in, arriving to”) Marta Wörner proposes the inquire of the act of “fall in” as a tool for de-patterning, a physical door to the unknown. The research will be presented one the one hand by an exposition of her documentation and on the other hand by an interdisciplinary movement work. The resulting interdisciplinary piece is a playful physical and spatial dialogue between controlling and “falling in”, or between balance and uncertainty that happens in a fragmented and multidimensional space. Starting from the destructuration of the space through the scenographic practice Marta uses an interactive steel construction with video projections together with sound and light design tools to build a fragmented universe that challenges the body to find its place inside that fluent setting through a process of becoming or falling in. The research has been led by an always changing, falling research question: How the fragmentation and destructuration of the space relate to the kinetic action of falling knowledge of my findings?
During the residency at CLOUD/DANSLAB
In this artistic residency at Cloud/Danslab, Marta Wörner will be experimenting on how to present her research documentation through the exposition model. Rather than create an academic paper to share her research, Marta has the aim to facilitate an experience that allows the audience to enter into the research universe she has been diving in during these years and to generate new knowledge together with the viewer’s experience and presence. For that, Marta will design an interactive space that, in coherence with her performative work, allows a nomadic experience in which the audience can access her documentation freely but guided and informed. During the residency, Marta will invite artists from different fields to allow their experiences and comments to influence her design.
If you are interested in participating, experiencing or questioning Marta’s research during the residency period, please, write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short text explaining why would you like to attend to one of the research sessions and your availability between the 20th and 22nd of May. Moreover, there will be a showing of the outcome of the residency period during the 26th of May. If you would like to attend, please, send an email to email@example.com .The participation in both activities is free of charge, as it is thought of as an exchange. However, the inscription is necessary and the commitment to the appointment is appreciated.
