In-between space, movement and time
Pelenakeke Brown is a curator, choreographer and artist whose practice is rooted in the Samoan concept »va«, which describes people’s social relationship and their connections to the world. She transforms these concepts into poetry, dance and visual arts in her exploration of technology and indigenous culture. In her one-week residency at Kampnagel, she will deal with questions, such as: What is the smallest movement you can make? How do you draw movement in space and time? How do technology, painting and movement interact with each other? How can you develop choreographic practices further on the computer keyboard? And how do you find the »va« at Kampnagel? Pelenakeke Brown’s work addresses the disabled body and explores the normative understanding of dance, notation, material and archive by playing with choreographic spaces on and off stage. To this end, she will give a lecture at the conference”Material Goods” and offer an open space in which viewers can get to know her practice better.
