idea and movement concept: Jasmin Schaitl and Laura Oriol
video concept: Monika Rabofsky
circular is part of a performance research practice initiated by Jasmin Schaitl and Laura Oriol. Their collaboration began with their common interest in meditation, slowness, emptiness and durational performances. In early 2017, they met in a residency in France and developed a performative meditative movement concept where they rolled on the ground slowly as a way to deepen inner-body listening and release innate inner movement. Monika Rabofsky joined a second part of this work to support with videography and create a short film. The video aspires to melt away a sense of separation from one’s environment, similar to what the performers are experiencing.
