AN ARTISTIC AND PERFORMATIV GATHERING
11. & 12. November, 2022
Tanzquartier Wien, Halle G.
Curated by Katalin Erdődi and Philipp GehmacherBodies gather. And we will celebrate the bodies and their parts. We will settle in this space. To commune with the people and objects. To support, hold onto, listen, and address. Looking back at the past. And telling stories of a future to come. A circle, open and closed, picking our way along its contours. A circle for us – a guiding principle. To be led through the space, to accept the invitation to find rest. Or to track down a voice.With: Alix Eynaudi, Susanne Songi Griem, Katja Haarla, Satu Herrala, Sabina Holzer, Thomas Hörl and Peter Kozek, Anne Juren, Peter Kutin, Myriam Lefkowitz, Eliana Otta, Hans Schabus, Eva Seiler, Shaymaa Shoukry, Elizabeth Ward a. o. – Intiated by Philipp Gehmacher, co-produced by Philipp Gehmacher / Mumbling Fish and Tanzquartier Wien. With support from the Municipal Department of Cultural Affairs, Vienna.MORE INFORMATION: https://tqw.at/en/event/together-the-parts-gathering/

Humans now move more rock material than all the rivers and seas in the world combined. After their sensational performance on the Brigittenauer Bridge at Wien Modern 2019, artist Kathrin Hornek and composer Judith Unterpertinger once again invite us to hike through a concrete mountain range as part of the festival. Their book Modified Grounds, Bodies of Data – Bildatlas einer Sound-Performance-Reihe, to be published by Riff am Hang in 2022, will not only be presented on this occasion, but will also function as the score of a performance: Modified Grounds, Bodies of Data will lead into remote archives of the earth sciences at the University of Vienna and make audible live performed excerpts of the sound installations documented in the book.MORE INFORMATION: https://www.wienmodern.at/2022-modified-grounds-de-2434

REASONABLE MESSAGES FROM UNREASONABLE DANCES

18.–22.7. // 14:45–17:15

Yes! — there are vast territories with which one can only get in touch with as moving i.e. dancing bodies. Everything seems different there: pasts connect with futures; the self and the collective intermingles, strange creatures – plants, animals, anorganic particles, microbes, and humans – create assemblages we somehow feel entitled to call “ours”. How can we share these experiences? What kind of messages can we bring from these exquisite, mysterious places? What kind of reasonings linger within this troubled mattering of the vivid chaosmos? How can we render them less mysterious and more … reasonable – even much more reasonable than occidental’s old reasoning!
While connecting with our speaking, dreaming, thinking, desiring and inventive bodies, we charter traces of wishes and wisdom about ourselves and the world we live in. Relating to this nonverbal writing in space and time, we invite some philosophies and fictions to bridge science / theory / fiction and experiences. While exploring the spaces around the words and ways to listen to this polyphony between all sorts of bodies, we are mesmerised. How to approach the intelligence of the body without subordinating the body to that big word of Reason? How to follow and set free the manifold reasonings of bodies? A whole different ecology of attention awaits us here and wants to share its potentials.
In light of recent events, Tanzquartier Vienna invites refugees to participate in the programme of Body and Performance Practices for free. It is a great initiative!
connect & care
7th – 28th of June, every Tuesday from 17:30 – 18:30.
This is an invitation into a mindful space as a blend of movement and care. I will facilitate movements and postures to stabilize, ground and nourish peaceful resilience. We will invest in regenerating practices to ease mental & emotional stress in the interplay of Yoga positions and their modifications. Often, but not always the flow of the sequence is slowed down to unfold curiosity for the here&now. We practice calm sensibility towards the movements of the breath and awareness towards oneself in order to connect to one’s own rhythms. A set of physical and energetic alignment principles offer to fuel our intentions and engage with manifold senses of empowerment and community.
Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga is a transformative style of Yoga founded by Sadie Nardini, based on the teaching of Lesly Kaminoff in the tradition T.K.V. Desikachar. It is a deep and mindful investigation of breath related wave-like movements with relaxed musculature. By softening the external body, deep internal muscles can be activated, so that motion occurs with more ease and joy, always relating to the core body as an supportive system in all our activities.
MORNING PRACTICE @ Tanzquartier Wien
24th – 29th April 2022
10:00 – 11:30 Studio
My artistic practice is a combination of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga®, a mindful and invigorating yoga style to give me structure and connect me to my core; movement explorations to experience the (bewildered) different physical flows and rebounces; and free writing / drawing to get in touch with the poetics and science / fiction of our expanded dreams. During this morning practice, we will weave these elements to trace and speculate with manifold becomings and multispecies connections. Therefore the liquidity of our body-minds in regard to waves, contraction, expansion, retreat – relate – response – react will be explored towards oneself and the others.
The practice is related to the workshop. It is therefore recommended to attend them together
WORKSHOP @ Tanzquartier Wien
25th, 27th, 29th of April
13:00 – 15:00
During the workshop I will share my ongoing choreographic research concerning the interaction between human and non-human bodies, specifically between human bodies and their environment. By bringing the awareness to fluids in and around us, we connect to the systems through which communication with and transformation of internal and external environments occur. Fluids are connecting elements. Fluids are like touches; they cause exchanges between bodies, allow bodies to merge into each other, make boundaries fluid or reveal differences. What performativity do they reveal, what kind of dances? How to choreograph fluidity? What scores, poems and imaginatives support a flow? What can we learn from nature-cultures around and within us?
The workshop is related to Sabina Holzer’s morning practice. It is therefore recommended to attend them together.

for some time, maybe months (or years), i attend to an imaginary garden which grows and vegetates. in collaboration with the subconscious, i’m taking care of inner images that the body produces and which manifest, among other things, in drawings and vertical texts. moments of a process that accompanies me in a spiral. and because april blossoms, the garden goes for a walk and looks forward to visitors:

Sabina Holzer (Text/Video, choreographed intervention), Bruno Szenk (technical assistance sculpture ), TE-R (3D Modeling and Animation, Sound), Rachel Müller (Voice).ar/ge kunst and BAU present Plant Plant, a project by artist Katrin Hornek emerging from her research in South Tyrol between 2020 and 2021 within the context of ar/ge kunst’s One Year-Long Research Project/Fifth edition and the BAU Residency.Katrin Hornek’s Plant Plant consists of her solo exhibition and a choreographed intervention at the former Montecatini factory with performer Sabina Holzer (Factory Walk). The exhibition presents a new film and a series of sculptures that situate the chemical element of nitrogen as the prism through which to look at the history of fertilizer production with its immediate and planetary entanglements.
5th of February FACTORY WALK
In response to Katrin Hornek’s invitation, the performer Sabina Holzer will choreograph a public event, the FACTORY WALK to introduce a bodily experience, framed by the architecture and equipment of the Ex-Montecatini Factory in Sinigo, Merano.
FACTORY WALK expands from the research of Plant Plant and entangles the molecular and earthly perspectives with the physical encounter of the site to open the senses and the imagination. It will trace the resemblances between organic and inorganic matter, between the natural, cultural and industrial as interrelated bodies we share and of which we are a part.
PLANT PLANT is a project by Katrin Hornek
This exhibition was produced in collaboration with Phileas – A Fund for Contemporary Art

Lecture | Workshop | Intervention

Online and OutdoorJohannesgasse 4a
„Scores invite us to step out of the studio and into the world; to trust and engage in explorations of movement. They don’t let us get stuck in habits, but instigate us to pursue playfulness and precision in our dance and performances.“ (Sabina Holzer)
Poetics of Scores explores scores and instructions for actions as a method of composition for interventions in public spaces and asks whether this particular methodological approach stimulates a specific aesthetic and ethic in the performative settings.
The transdisciplinary approach will be presented with a focus on the use of scores in the work of Anna and Lawrence Halprin and their social choreographies as an example in a lecture.
Based on this, we will practically explore the conditions of scores in a three-hour workshop. What forms of communities are generated with this practice? What kind of togetherness or being-with is created when attention is focused on sensory perception? What kind of spaces for action are created by this?
With these investigations we will design an intervention in public space in the 2nd part of the workshop and reflect on it together.
