Leo Naomi Baur: The Disempowered – Tanz

About the unavailability of the sick body and the unpredictability of one's own presence.

The Disempowered deals with unavailability. With the unavailability of the sick body, the unpredictability of one's own presence. The installative video work deliberately focuses on physical and emotional states, which are often pushed back into the realm of private fate, and testifies to the longing for shared experiences. In the field of tension between absence and participation, the audience is invited to temporarily inhabit the emerging space together. With the audience in the room, a choreography is created without live dance, a film without a screen, an audio walk without a defined path.
