Zodiak: Memory Matter
ZODIAK - CENTER FOR NEW DANCE: GEORGIE GOATER, MAIKKI PALM, GESA PIPER - MEMORY MATTER
21.-28.10.2020, Zodiak Stage, Cable Factory
In Memory Matter, by Gesa Piper, Maikki Palm and Georgie Goater, embodied ancestral lineages are explored and reimagined through herstorical perspectives, colliding and intertwining corporeal auto-narratives, and the immanent grandbodies in each of us.
Memory Matter explores and unpacks embodied ancestral lineage(s) through the lens of "grandmother". The "the grandmother" is not only the literal family relation, but a portal to meeting concepts of time travel within oneself, and the impossibilities of encountering what is no longer present.
The three choreographers/dance makers hae varying immediate lineages (New Zealand, Finland and Germany). The work delves into reimagine the line of heritage through herstorical perspectives. These perspectives collide and intertwine in corporeal explorations of real and imagined auto-narratives through time, in relation with one another, and with the grandbody that resides as immanent potentiality in each of us.
The process invited encounters with family members to help shape the work, as an exploration to re-embody those choreographic agents who shape moments of life.
