A Human Ensemble is ten simultaneous solos and a weave of psycho-corporeal formulations that emerge from the group’s collective preconscious.
Karolina Ginman, a dancer-choreographer, pedagogue and soon-to-be psychologist, has researched the suggestion for a reformulation of free association for the body since 2016. Within the context of A Human Ensemble she shares this suggestion with ten human beings, all from different backgrounds, tempting ten simultaneous reflections in inevitable relation to one another and engaging in an undefinable range of dynamics, energies, volumes, efforts, tempos and affects to be articulated simultaneously in space.
The appr. 45 minutes performance/demo of the ensemble will be followed by a discussion open to the public.
The event is a co-production with Pixelache Festival #Burn__2020.
