“Doris held the space with such generosity and enthusiasm (…) a great energetic and liberating experience as an individual and collective body.” Camille Jemelen

In this workshop facets of nakedness on stage will be explored. We search for movement that can emerge only with and through the naked body – what dynamics lie in weight, in flesh, in fat, in skin and sweat? We work on my fatdance technique, we let our flesh fly and give the body a voice. Which forms of robustness and fragility can be discovered in a naked body? The objective is a “dancerly materialism” that before anything else takes the body as material seriously, instead of degrading it to the role of the fetish or object or turning it into a metaphoric or poetic ideology. We celebrate the materiality of the body with the motto: “Let´s party our body!” and ask ourselves what it means nowadays to undress and set the naked body in motion. Doris will add to the workshop her current researches of her work Rave Machine including techno sounds and ezctasy to it!
