What is So Funny

What’s So Funny?

The living online room adaptation of the stage performance has been dedicated to its missing space and neurogenesis. While space limitations re-shape and re-create movement repertoire morphing it into the unknown, the process of creating circuitry in the nervous system occurs through the daily practice. The body, enriched with the virtual extensions through the moving picture of the screen, evokes its potential for transformation. In this process the perception of 2D representation of a puppet-sized dancing human is translated into a live 3D body. As a result, the challenging integration of digital and real sources of information have become lived experience and even if the reality of this practice is virtual, the sweat is real.

What’s So Funny? is a choreography composed in 2016 from selected exercises of pioneers of modern dance in Poland and Germany. The movement vocabulary has been transformed due to global circumstances and come back to its origin – Kamertanz. However now, the digital version of the choreography is prepared for the still eye of a camera, it can be also presented on stage. The solo in solitude may also be streamed online.
