Creative lab / Rósa Ómarsdóttir
In the workshop, the participants will dive into the Ecosystem-Practice together with Rósa. They will explore the relationship between people and things, and the power relations between human and non-human entities. They will dive into the movement practice and explore how they are influenced by the environment and how, in return, influence the environment as well. They will read and discuss texts from environmental philosophers and thinkers and look at how to apply those ideas to artistic practice. Furthermore, they will explore how the body relates to the space, the sounds, and scenographic elements: to things and materials, sounds, and all the invisible forces which are already there even though we don’t notice them.
