FOREST – a performance by Robert Steijn in collaboration with 5 students of the Masterprogram in Choreography at DOCH + guests

Dinis Machado, Nefeli Oikonomou, Caroline Byström, Ofelia Jarl Ortega and Emma Tolander
Guests: Eliisa Erävalo och Emelie Garmén

Starting with the question of what happens when one dances, sings, thinks and is present in front of the eyes of a group of people Robert Steijn opens up his workshop held at the Masterprogram in Choreography to the public. Through an experimentation of perceptions of body an mind, via shamanic strategies of shape shifting and mind traveling, the workshop investigates the performative body. What can belief-systems generate in actions and in situations? What do we believe when we perform? And how does that belief influence, enrich, or limit our performance?
