PANDORA'S DROPBOXPRINT THIS PAGE
After her residency in Tokyo last month, Katja will use the new input and continue the process of her current project 'Pandora's Dropbox; an anti-tragedy for perfect beings'.
In this project Katja researches the relation between human and machine.
How does the current technological evolution in daily life influence our physicality and the definition of 'being human'? When does a human become a machine? Katja wants to create an utopian world, in which everything is measurable and predictable. An anti-tragical world, fully under control, without any conflict, in perfect balance...
Together with her dancers she is busy with exploring a very specific movement technique, to control the body to its very limits, even the blinking of the eye is choreographed. At workspace she will develop this movement research further, testing the borders of the human body.
The performance installation 'Pandora's Dropbox' will premiere in May 2017 at SPRING festival Utrecht.
Try-outs will be at STRP festival Eindhoven and tanzhaus nrw Duesseldorf.
For this project Katja works closely together with musician Sander van der Schaaf, philosopher/writer Ingrid de Rond and performer Celine Werkhoven.
Katja Heitmann is supported by the Dutch Fonds Podiumkunsten, PLAN Noord Brabant and her partners DansBrabant, tanzhaus nrw, Het Huis Utrecht and SPRING festival.
