Writing letters to/from choreographical elements - workshop by Lina Zeller

@ Toni-Areal, Viaduktraum 2.A05, Ebene 2 (street entrance), Pfingstweidstrasse 96, Zürich

“My main interest in practical/theoretical research is related to the body, the movements and the studies that deal with Choreographic Composition. I have never had a specific interest in creating choreography, but I am fascinated by the elements of choreographic making, and how its concepts can be expanded, dissolved, transmuted and reorganized, either in the dance field or not.

I think of bringing fundamental questions of the body and choreographic making to contaminate/relate to the poetic practices of SoC colleagues. What would it be like to look into other people’s creative process through choreographic ideas? How to evoke dance/movement elements and bring them up to establish a transdisciplinary field? I am interested in making use of this kit/tool in a workshop for SoC members to cross the boundaries of certainties of choreographic making: dissolving convictions, softening memories, and experimenting with movement/choreographic elements. To navigate between the choreographic world and the colleagues’ research, I am interested in sending /via post/ handwritten letters that dialogue/affect the creative processes of SoC colleagues. After carefully analyzing each SoC’s proposal, the letters would bring choreographic elements to provoke/stimulate/resonate with them.” – workshop by Lina Zeller, with support by Marisa Godoy, Patrick Zeller
