About the event
In this workshop, we will look at how we can organise our own body like an individual ecosystem, where we explore how visible and invisible physical textures contribute to this symbiosis. Using techniques inspired by the living organism humus, we will let our movements live and die perpetually, a process that is both beautiful and violent. Further, we will look at how this personal ecosystem can be organised in relation to other bodies, present or imagined, which is an attempt to stretch the notion of the physical body as a momentarily present into a timeless one.
