tilt/rhythm/back is a choreographic project developing across a series of dances, drawings, artist pages and open labs to explore a notion of the ‘dorsal’ and a moving body’s orientation to the back – the surfaces of the body hidden from view.
Moving through the back and moving backwards creates a particular relationship to the spine, weight, gravity, breath, skin, vision – often manifesting as a slightly disorientating force. Katrina is curious how the dorsal as a choreographic entry point could create playful resistant interventions in the general forward direction of our moving, working, living – how philosophical ideas of the dorsal coincide and reside in the moving body and in moving together.
Katrina will be developing movement material and drawings for the project as well as experimenting with formats for presenting live and mediated works: towards the making of a ‘choreographic exhibition’ consisting of dances and drawings for gallery-like and other architectural spaces. Join her to see a ‘Sneak Peek or work developed so far throughout this residency process.
