How does movement, dance and choreography emerge in collaboration with site?

By Paula Kramer

An artist book based on embodied research into intermateriality that asks: how does movement, dance and choreography emerge in collaboration with site? More specifically: how do bodies, materials, sites, organisms, history, tuning and training and more intermingle and speak, bringing forth what we later might call movement, dance or choreography?

This book, Suomenlinna//Gropius – Two Contemplations on Body, Movement and Intermateriality, is an invitation to explore movement practice, dance and life in relationship to site and materiality; to rethink choreography and our human placedness as intermaterial; to rest in the images, the poetry; to breathe.

Come travel – to rocks, sea, wind, birds and more on Suomenlinna, island and sea fortress extraordinaire outside of Helsinki. And to Südplatz, the hidden and complex back side of Gropius-Bau, an exhibition centre for contemporary art in Berlin. With trees, and cobblestones, and fences, and history dark and history light, and people, and cars and dancing.

The book explores narration, poetry and theory born out of specific experiences of moving-dancing in and with site and is based on three years of post-doctoral research done at Uniarts Helsinki’s Centre for Artistic Research (CfAR).
