#abismo.animados> act performance ritual
The act performance ritual #abismo.animados is part of the #abyss series , a choreographic research and performance project by Flesh System - a collective initiated in 2012 by Korina Kordova and Przemek Kaminski in the abyss between Warsaw and Berlin. The first artistic outcome of the collective research was the performance #abyss.witchroulette (2013), followed by the culinary extravaganza #abyss.foodpossession (2015).
In 2017, after relocating to her native São Paulo, Korina looked back at the #abyss and began to work with a collection of extrahuman bodies: sculptures created by her mother Eudoxie Pavlina, a Greek sybil.
In #abismo.animados all matter is vibrant and mutant, no structure is passive or stable. A labyrinthic experience potentialized by Mary Wigman, Rosemary, Reagan and Marie Sklodowska Curie, the work connects ideas and concepts of the magical to the choregraphical, bringing together bodily practices and magic rituals.
#abismo.animados was created for Mostra Paralela arte. corpo. performance, held by the Arts Institute of the Federal University of Uberlândia (Minas Gerais, BR). The #abismo project had the support of the artist-in-residence program at Centro de Referência da Dança da Cidade de São Paulo from 2018 to 2019.
