See the world as a mystery.
An onion with many layers.
Look beneath the surface.
Peel things to it ́s core.
Follow the threads of life.
LAYER BY LAYER is an interdisciplinary performance project. Dance, textile art and live music will fuse together. Therefore, I am collaborating with Claire Chatel, a French-Austrian textile artist and designer, as well as with two Austrian musicians.
Theme: “MULTIPLE LAYERS “
Universe- Worlds- Body- Society- Movement- Living beings- Thoughts- Materials- Emotions- Stories- Relations- Life- Textiles- Systems- Perception- Dreams- Sounds- People… are complex.
They consist of many elements, of different layers. Their structure is being shaped by time, by life. Each experience leaves marks, shaping and changing the story. Sounds, textiles and movements can be broken down into their finest fragments. They can condense and dissolve themselves. They influence and communicate, connect, separate or envelop each other. The performer plunges into different layers, atmospheres of different surroundings, and into her own inner universe.
Fields of Research & Questions:
Textiles, sounds and the anatomy of the body consist of layers, waves, and structures. We see and hear, but usually we only perceive “the whole” or rather the uppermost layers.
To what extent can a human being perceive deeper layers and differentiate between them? In more concrete terms: To what extent can we feel the structure of a fabric on our skin, feel our fascias, make out the different voices of a sound carpet or perceive the feeling that lies hidden beneath another?
