The video performance ‘material encounters’ explores the relation between body, garment and space and the materiality of movement and imagination. Visual artist Margret Wibmer and dancer/choreographer Miri Lee developed the garment, movement and choreography in a collaborative effort through research in practice. Materiality and space are explored through movement, folding and unfolding, air and breath. A complex language emerges through these encounters, revealing the magic and intelligence of body and textiles through movement and touch.
The realization of this project was supported by: Stichting Stokroos, Land Tirol, Natlab. Special thanks to Loods 6 Bagagehal.
