*The symbolic fee of the workshop is meant to cover the cost of the space. However, if any participant has a firm wish to attend but an honest economical impediment, the participant can communicate the situation to the organization and not be charged
In this workshop, we will explore the physical,
psychical and sensorial implications of the
action of “falling in”.
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 fall as a physical door to the unknown. Understanding “falling in” as an uncontrolled abandoning the body to the force of gravity and embracing its implication on the mental state of the performer, we will focus in the re-organization of the body in between moments of physical balance.
It is a play between controlling and “falling in” in which the participants will inquire the potential of their articulated movement, the openness of the body worked through the relaxation and conscious use of the core, and the awareness of the space.
The kinetics of the human body and its ability to reorganize itself to become another thrives me. As a maker, Marta is interested in exploring its interaction with other structures that do not change or move that way, as the established structures in the city or fundamental building blocks of our thoughts and beliefs.
The workshop also has the aim to invite a selection of participants to the following artistic residency of Marta Wörner at CLOUD DansLab, in which she will continue developing her artistic research.
Defining the body as a natural structure, she always wanted to learn from it. With the firm thought that the body has an inherent valuable knowledge that I can not name yet, but intuit it, I always moved.
Her other fascination is the deconstruction of the space through the scenographic tools and the dramaturgical possibilities of it.
The goal with this research is to build a space between the theatre and the street through the deconstruction of space and scenographic dramaturgy as tools, which allowed me to explore the dichotomy solid-fluent/structure-destructure and its application and affections to the body, all below the inspirational umbrella of the idea of performing the concept of “becoming” and reflecting on it.
RESEARCH QUESTION FOR THE ARTISTIC RESIDENCY AT DANSLAB.
The artistic residency at CLOUD DansLab will start with the workshop FALLING between 26 Feb- 10 March , the reserach stage of the residency will be carried out between the 13th and 26th of May.
In this two weeks residency at CLOUD DansLab, Marta wants to explore the implications of transferring my findings on the embodiment of the Deleuzian concept of becoming as a tool for material creation to other dancers/performers..
