What? Philosophy, Choreography, Mixed Reality Installation, Bodily Experience

Info: This workshop aims to explore the embodied character of practices from a phenomenological perspective, so as to bring this phenomenological account into dialogue both with »Performative Aesthetics« (Erika Fischer-Lichte) and with performances as embodied aesthetic practices. This topic is addressed from both a theoretical and practical point of view: the workshop includes an artistic installation initiated by Susan Kozel using augmented reality to archive the somatic quality of Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir’s performance, as well as a session of somatic exercises based on Guðjónsdóttir’s choreographic method.

The installation “CONSPIRACY ARCHIVES” is a Mixed Reality Choreographic Archive. The large images installed in this space act as triggers to launch video in an augmented reality app running on mobile devices (phones, iPads etc.). In this artistic research project, the somatic qualities of the performance Conspiracy Ceremony-HYPERSONIC STATES (2017) by Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir are channeled and shared. This archive uses digital devices to transport something of human value and experience beyond the domain of the commercial world and consumer markets. It is an active political gesture.
