RESONANS: Lea Martini
Solo performance: In the Inside there is Sleeping
For Resonans, Lea Martini presents In the Inside there is Sleeping. It is a solo performance where she slowly lets the phantasmatic sensation of daily dance practice take over. It overpasses her body, almost removing her as the movement’s operator.
The performance is part of Lea Martini’s ongoing project Tanzplage. Taking the medieval dancing plague phenomena as starting point, she asks whether movement is a pandemic infection. By then, hundreds of peoples bursted out on the streets and squares of several European cities. Some danced until they fell down dead. This is a solo that misses the others.
The project is presented as part of this year’s art program of Norbergfestival, entitled CHOREOMANIA. For Tanzplage Norberg, DJ and producer KABLAM (aka Kajsa Blom) joins the movement with sounds. For Resonans, KABLAM will be DJ:ing in between the sets.
Berlin based choreographer, dancer and dance facilitator Lea Martini has always been interested in physical intensities and is the co-founder of collaborations such as the performance collective White Horse and Deter/Müller/Martini. Dancing Plague had its first emergence at the Gothenburg platform Skogen in 2014 and has since involved various practitioners.
Before the performance, Lea Martini will present the background of her work in an artist talk.
This performance is funded by Goethe Institut
