The Colective Body

The starting point for this research has been a project I did in 2011 in Leipzig, Germany, called TURN! In this project I created - in collaboration with choreographer Heike Hennig - a choreography with a big group of volunteers on a stadium field. I wanted to investigate the possibilities for synchronised, collective movement in a space that is loaded with the history of mass-movement parades during the socialist GDR, but throughout the last 25 years has become an arena for contemporary links between sports and commerce. I wanted to explore possibilities for contemporary collective movements that transgress both commercial and ideological use. My premise is the belief that individualism is a norm and a totality in western society. This individualism needs to be questioned just as much as the norms and totalities within state-socialism needed to be questioned.
