Daniel Klingen Borg and Ernestyna Orlowska are sharing some creation techniques from their duet "Should I Do the Man's Part", a choreography for a tall woman and a small man. For the creation of that piece, they used their bodies as indifferent sculptural material to create various ways of holding and supporting each other and transferred those constellations into a way of moving through space together in a playful way. Through a dance vocabulary taken from everyday life movements, some of the scores and improvisations from the creation process of this duet will be explored together in the workshop. All movement abilities are very welcome!
Ernestyna Maria Orlowska has a Bachelor in Fine Arts and a Master in Expanded Theater from the Berne University of Arts, where she currently lives and works. Her artistic practice takes place at the intersection of visual art, choreography and performance and her primary interest is the human body in its various areas of conflict. In her work, norms and ideals are questioned and the automatisms of seeing and classifying are destabilized, attribution and categorization are undermined. She is driven by the question of how we can create resonant world-relationships with everything that exists, be it human or non-human. Her works are shown in galleries, independent art spaces, museums as well as theaters and festivals
such as Instituto Svizzero Milano, Helmhaus Zurich, Bone Performance Festival Berne, Schlachthaus Theater Berne, Südpol Lucerne, Dampfzentrale Berne, Les Urbaines Lausanne, Buzz Cut Festival Glasgow, Theaterspektakel Zürich, Transeuropa Festival Hildesheim, Kunsthalle Basel, Ming Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai,
Studio Galeria Warsaw, etc.
