ROTRAUD KERN (AT)

where we meet, vol.1

 
POETRY OF THE UNKNOWN — where we meet, vol.1 is an attempt at  suprapersonal interaction in order to expand the boundaries of our physical bodies and thus our perception. Making the contingency of togetherness experienceable. Rotraud Kern and Raúl Maia explore the “space of the in-between” that arises through the relationship of their two bodies. In the in-between of intention and intentionlessness a new dimension takes over the movements of their bodies. The audience thus shares in an kinesthetic process that takes place through two bodies and their constantly changing space between them. In the dissolution of the individualised bodies a new space emerges that connects the performers and spectators and situatively allows them to become one.
