Presentation 5 May 18:00 Facebook
Movement lab monday till thursday from 100:00 till 11:15 am

During the residency Marlieke Burghouts is going to deepen out the first stages of her research into the embodiment and staging of ‘willfulness’ and ‘willingness’.
(Sara Ahmed Willful subjects Duke Press 2014 )

This research is conducted in relation to the whole body, but in particularly in relation to the action of raising the arm and the diverse meanings and readings this gesture can have.

My interest lays in investigating how the individual body, in this case myself, experiences willingness and willfulness and how that influences the actions and shaping of the body. Where do my decisions spatially and physically bring me?

The work will be created in collaboration with sound artists Jeske de Blauw en Mark IJzerman.

Workshop | Anatomy, Movement, Improvisation | Marlieke Burghouts

Sunday 15 November | 14:00-17:00 | €25,-

In this workshop we will explore animalistic and dynamic movement quality by deliberately using the connections of the muscled and joints in the body. This exploration aims towards articulated, yet organic flow of movements that, through the process, become instinctive.

This research aims to look at the body as a whole and connected by looking into the relations of the different joints and the muscles that activate them. Building up the alignment in the body by connecting different points in the body. We will be going into the artistic research with an anatomical basis.
