- WE WERE NEVER ONE
The first rehearsal period for Karin’s new group project “WE WERE NEVER ONE” which will premiere in April 2022 at Brut/ Vienna is taking place at MDT. WE WERE NEVER ONE is part of the cycle ‚dances of the anthropocene‘ which challenges and investigates our human centered world view and seeks to develop embodied practices of empathy and care. WE WERE NEVER ONE is a transforming performance installation project and an exhibition space. Bodies of sculpture and live performance fuse with a textual layer which gives agency to all the main players of our times, e.g. plastic, fossil fuel, nuclear waste, viruses… It investigates a body exposed to current ecological and political conditions. A practice of thinking with our bodies about the world around us highlights interrelational webs.
The project works with the realization that ever “I” is also “WE”.
This residency exchange is a creative crossroads project of the Life Long Burning Network (with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union).
