Ola Maciejewska’s work focuses on practices, learning processes and transmission of a legacy called: Thing Dances – approaches where technologies, objects, equipment, spaces, artifacts, and instruments are involved in the process of movement production. After working with Loïe Fuller’s ‘dancing structure’ in Loïe Fuller: Research and Bombyx Mori, Sisyphus rock in Tekton and Cosmopol, she embodies a particular genre of dance history as a way to respond to the ecological crisis that calls for new commitments and a new grammar. She received a scholarship from “International Tanzmesse NRW” to carry out research focused on the scenography of Rolf Borzik at the Archives of the Pina Bausch Foundation.
Tool Kit Transmission: Loïe Fuller
The participants will be working with tools that emerged from a choreographic research on serpentine dances invented by Loïe Fuller. They will focus on tasks that explore the visible and invisible movements, duration, vocal work based on beatboxing techniques – with the participation of Scratchy – and explore more precisely the intersection between dance and sculpture. The idea is to engage in a collective practice that evokes foreign lands without needing to travel far away.
