XYZ/s extended - Gesamtatelier

XYZ/s extended
Performance / Installation by Gesamtatelier and AAIS


XYZ/s extended is a multimedia, interactive performance/installation which challenges the relationships among performers, visitors, objects, space and our senses. It draws inspiration from some of the most prominent theories of physics and philosophy, creating an interplay of the four dimensions (point, line, plane and time). Visitors are encouraged to explore three different spaces and find themselves in various roles and situations. Each space has its own immersive environment for people to experience and interact with. The project was initially created in collaboration with the Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio within the context of the MA/MFA in Spatial Performance and Design and reworked for the UK Young Artists Festival 2016

Performed at Déda, Derby, as part of the UK Young Artists National Festival 2016
Variable dimensions
Duration: 50 min

During 2016 I have been in close collaboration with Gesamtatelier and the Architectural Association Interprofessional Studio. I have been invited to contribute as a choreographer and performer. 

Gesamtatelier is a newly-established platform by/for young practitioners from several creative fields who collaborate towards the conception and realisation of interdisciplinary projects. The team aspires to push the boundaries of several domains, mediums and genres: performance art, dance, design, sound composition, curating, architecture and the visual arts. The members of our ensemble aim to keep an open, dynamic structure which adapts to the nature of each project: performances, exhibitions, installations, publications etc. The creators involved for every scheme intertwine diverse educational and cultural background creating hybrids between their respective practices.
