During this residency Hagar Tenenbaum will focus on processes of movement assimilation using principles of repetition.
She is interested in two sources of movement: movement that is ascribed as dance, meaning a gesture that comes from the contemporary and modern dance vocabulary, and movement that comes from a more literal and direct imitation of different mechanisms and other beings. Through the state of repetition and gradual change she wishes to establish a vocabulary of movements and sounds that will be based on mimicry and will challenge the body’s transitions between the concrete readable shapes to the more abstract physical expression. With these tools Hagar would like to ‘speak’ about the plasticity of the body and observe what kind of awkward humorous entertainment can be created in the interface between the biological body and the image it chooses to imitate and repeat.
