About

What does it mean to be a creator, and what does it take to make or remake an art work in and for the digital age? 'The Chapter House' is an interdisciplinary dance piece featuring intricate choreography by Zoi Dimitriou coupled with video installation by Mark Coniglio, inventor of Isadora software and co-director of the group Troika Ranch. This new perspective-shifting collaboration is a seductively ambiguous examination of the acts of performing and documentation. Dimitriou's aim is to expose the processes and mechanics of creation by using digital media to record, re-construct and re-enact a live performance. In The Chapter House she's inviting you to gaze back at the body of her work and discover how meaning can be revealed and transformed…

'The Chapter House' is commissioned by Trinity Laban. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, with further support from dancedigital, Duncan Research Center for Dance (GR) and dance-tech Berlin/Lake Studios.

Workshop: When Hanna met Zoi

With Hanna Hegenscheidt and Zoi Dimitriou, 6-10 July 2015, Berlin

About

Around 15 years ago Hanna and Zoi met, studying at the Susan klein School in New York City. Since then Hanna dove deeper into understanding and teaching Klein Technique while Zoi developed her own movement practice informed by principles of Klein Technique, Alexander Technique and her own personal understanding of movement and dance.

Their common interest in the articulation of the body in motion is bringing them together now to co-teach a week-long summer intensive in order to explore how their experience and knowledge interweaves, complements and affects each other.
