Moving Landscapes I
Dancing the elemental body: The body that measures the landscape, the body in intercourse with weather, the body kissing mass of peat, the body in love-death relation to the day…
The Moonwalk Lab is a itinerant dance research duo (or group) that works mainly outside the studio, in contact with nature.Through observing and meeting different landscapes and its elements, we collect images, sounds, stories and explore how to put them into motion.
The Moonwalk Lab is a work in progress project coming from the Moonwalk Experience, an itinerant dance laboratory in nature aimed at exploring the meeting between body and landscape.
Moonwalk is meant to become a danced reflection on the world and its natural, human-built, symbolic, energetic, psychological or legal borders. It is an opportunity to question, through the body, our way of perceiving, of relating to the earth, to nature, to human constructions, to the group.
During this last month we have travelled around the island of Syros diving into the local landscape, encountering people, words, sounds, stories, myths. In this occasion we have given ourselves a little challenge bringing our experiences into the studio and see what happens when we reconnect with the souvenirs of landscapes, with memory and oblivion.
We would like to share with you some of these images through a short performance and a projection on Saturday 10th, at 20.30h.
Anis Ouazzani and Ainara Lopez come from several backgrounds in dance and movement practices and are organizers of The Moonwalk Project, an itinerant dance project in nature within a moon cycle. They are currently on residency at the Akropoditi Dance Theatre.
