Soon travelling to Finland for Juli Reinartz resaerch/doctoral thesis. We will spend two weeks at the Saari-Residence in rural nature. A journey by land with a multi-divers team and my little one joining as well. Last week we shortly touched on the topic in her studio in Berlin where the final presentation takes place at the end of June.
I much enjoy the reflective-somatic space Juli creates on ‘Temporality and Bodies’:

LATE is a long ball.
A baroque opulence with contemporary bodies.
A collective dance on crip time.
An excess of the time that we have.
An experiment on collectivity.
How can we share time if we cannot share time?

A group of performers returns to the beginnings of dance notation, gets in formation and assesses anew the cultural past that has defined the power space around them. They put in question the possibility of synchronicity and organize the space along their temporal scope. By way of that, they create a space of simultaneities. They engage with the past in order to create a future for themselves.
