How much Kafka did you read before putting together your piece?
By sylvain et antoine.
We have seen a lot and we are not sure if we have understood a lot.
We share, we interact, we are curious.
We have interviewed some artists and many thoughts of them have enriched us.
We are discovering the whole building, the festival, the people, the artsit, the lecturers.
We are aware that it is a long way for us to go until we can really communicate dance.
We are being creative beyond our normal boarders.
We have fun!
After Meg Stuart's Built To Last, presented last night, feb 27th, at Kampnagel / Tanz Plattform Deutschland we gathered three word impressions from the audience.
We asked the audience members exiting the studio to give us the first three words they could think of to describe their experience of Stuart's work.
Here is what they said:
Audience member 1: great / nerves / painful
Audience member 2: joy / confusion / overload
Audience member 3: complex / expansive / energizing
Audience member 4: insignificant / human / absurd
Audience member 5: satisfied / scintillating / amused
Audience member 6: smily / disturbing / huge
Here is what we said:
Merel: particles / shaking / question mark
Giorgia: journeys / intuition / activities
Here are the questions we raised after gathering the audience's experience:
As a maker, at what point in the research process does the audience come in?
As an audience, how do you construct your experience of a performance?
As humans, how do we build something that we can hold on to?
Merel Heering and Giorgia Nardin
