The soft animal of our body

‘The soft animal of our body’ er stadig i gang, men i 2016 lavede vi en række performance eksperimenter på Bora Bora i Århus – stadig med udgangspunkt i det sensoriske. Vi eksperimenterede også med en teknik hvor vi kunne tale både individuelt og til grupper via en hjelm med indbyggede transmitter. Via hjelmen fik publikum både lyriske tekster og konkrete instruktioner. I disse eksperimenter havde jeg rollen som den der skrev og transmitterede teksterne.

Det er planen at en version The soft body of our body skal opføres i 2020-2021 – bl.a. på Island.

Tekst fra wunderland.dk om dette research project:

The Research for THE SOFT ANIMAL OF OUR BODY is a continuation of Wunderland’s work with radical physical and sensory audience participation into new fields.

With our solid background of working with the audience one by one, meeting one performer at the time, we
now want to explore new fields: the audience and the performers moving together as one group. Dissolving
who is who, exploring the physicality and inner dynamics in a group.

The research is an important step before the actual production, to know enough about the amount of input and
guidance a group needs, how the group changes with the numbers of individuals, and how many performers
are needed for a specific group size.
Furthermore we want to investigate how the live animation through sound
and words influences the group dynamics. And how the common costume influences the perception and
behaviour in the group.
