Body Iq 2016 Archives
FORMAT (workshop / performance / talk etc.
Since the 1960’s and already before choreogrpahers are busy with walking. At the same time, it is a basic body technique, which all kinds of sciences are interested in as well. Somatically speaking, walking is a practice that can bring together mind and body as well as people.
In a kind of ambulatory workshop-lecture, Martin Nachbar will talk about these topics and about the performance The Walk. While listeners are invited to walk along, there are also opportunities to take a rest, listen and watch.
Martin Nachbar is performer and choreographer. He has been working for more than 15 years in the overlaps between art and research. Doing so, he has never been interested in a definitive definition of artistic research, but in a productive interplay between the different approaches and in exploring his own and other people’s practices in relation to different production contexts and publics. He made The Walk in 2012, together with five colleagues. Martin tours with his pieces and his different workshop formats internationally. At the moment he is busy with several projects, one being a PhD on walking.
