Choreographer Ellinor Ljungkvist is holding a workshop at Köttinspektionen, a workshop that is part of her research project Meditation. In the workshop, participants will be exploring meditation, writing and improvisation. The workshop is aimed for both dancers and non-dancers with an interest in dance practices.
Artistic methodology and meditation, based on somatic and self-reflective practices, is the core of this research project. With inspiration from artists and philosophers such as Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovich, Virginia Woolf, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen and Simone de Beauvoir the practice of developing and formulating mental journeys is the aim. The meditations include existentialistic views on ones own appearance and animalism, naturalism and sorrow.
This research project is divided into two parts. The first part is supported by Dance in Örebro Region which gave possibility to begin the process. The second part is at the Art House ComPeung in Thailand for further development and creation of meditative material. The meditations are presented in the format of a workshop that are given in collaboration with Teater Martin Mutter ”Festival Going Solo Together”, Weld – plattform for experimental art, Dansplats Skog and Köttinspektionen.
