Articulating Conflict– Contemplations & Detours
Abstract: The complex inquiry into what thinking actually is lies at the center of this performance/presentation. What do we constitute as thinking and what as doing? To what degree are these concepts still separable, treated as separate and enforced as such, and what does that mean for the body/mind balance in dance, in our exchange with audiences, in life? Language seems insufficient, still drawing from terminology created centuries ago where body and mind were fighting one other. We are struggling to catch up with new concepts about the mind/body continuum. Within a multi-layered presentation that incorporates movement and video projection against a simple background, Lüttringhaus retraces the development of our thinking and concludes with an inquiry into 4-dimensional 'thinking/bodying' and the various layers of complexity within our understanding of the body and its modes of communication.
