| Festival explore dance #4
| Young dance
In anatomy or biology lessons we learn about the human body as a skeleton or as a system of muscle strands and functions. Muscles, organs, body parts are depicted – but what exactly are these body parts, what defines my hand as a hand? And why is there no word for the area between my elbow and my upper arm? What would the body look like if we saw it as a landscape, a weather system or a folded skin sculpture? What do these body images look like in motion? In her piece Hey Körper?! Sahra Huby explores existing body concepts and body images, changes them and plays with them. Through dance, the ways of perceiving the body are expanded and alternative ways of representing the body are depicted by means of live drawings.
