Unisono- re//mix Anna Halprin – it is a proposition of a choreography project that was chosen by Komuna Warszawa to be produced in the re//mix edition 2013. The re//mix program is an idea for younger artists to pick an artist that inspires them in a way and work on their material. I proposed Anna’ s Halprin working methods.
Lately I was wondering about logics of working always in the studio, I realized that I’ve spend the last 20 years of my life moving in the dance studio. During my trip to Australia I started to discover the life outside. I could not help but wonder if there is a way to combine the natural world and the work that I have been doing in the studio. I started to wonder how can I apply those two worlds, and how my experiences in both can inform my movement and understanding of choreography. i started to remember the feeling of creating the world in the dance studio and experiencing the existing world out doors in the wild.
With this fascination I started to look for artists that were busy already applying the outdoors in their work. This is how I looked closer at Anna’s Halprin works and working methods. This is when I wrote my proposal to Komuna Warszawa with my idea of the re//mix. After it was accepted I invited two other artists to collaborate with during this work, Marysia Zimpel ( movement) and Justyna Calinska ( video). We will work in tree sessions. The first one starts al ready in April. The final result and the premiere of the Unisono – re//mix Anna Halprin will take place in Komuna Warszawa on the 22nd and 23rd of June 2013 in Warsaw.
