An Historical Tracing and Reproduction of the Motion between the Human Body and Industrial Artefacts

Choreography: I Jung Lim

Inspired by the post-industrial romanticism of the city of Berlin, this project is a dance piece for one body and five industrial objects. Against the background of the increasing immateriality of work, choreographer I Jung Lim proposes a radical (re)consideration of the relationship between the body and industrial artefacts by undermining concepts of identity, function, mechanics and materiality. Lim transforms studies and theories from industrial psychology into choreographic material, interwoven with Rudolf von Laban's research on dance and industry and Donna Haraway's visions of natural-technical evolutionary narratives.
