Elastic Empathic XL
Concept: Frey Faust, Francesca Pedullá
Choreography and Dance: Anne Cecile Chane- Tune, Frey Faust, Bariş Mihçi, Francesca Pedullá
How much can we maintain an awareness of both interoception and proprioception, while we “empathize” with and transpose the character or spirit of each other, the objects or even the space around us into movement?
Different bodies in terms of weight, mass, proportions and several wooden sticks of different length, weight and mass.
Playing with proximity and distance
Practicing an empathic gaze
Finding strategies for intensified listening; a patient and constant shift between leadership and following
Testing the responsiveness of spatial relationships
Reading the nature of relationships: menacing, reassuring, liberating, tender, humorous…..
ELASTIC_EMPATHIC XL is an attempt to internalize and instantly render imagined vicarious experiences or the desire/intent/perspective of the other and the non-human.
