Studies on Fantasmical  Anatomies  

Titel of the PhD project: Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies 

Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies is the title of my ongoing and transdisciplinary doctoral artistic research, which encompasses the spectrum of experiences and practices that I have developed as a choreographer, dancer, and Feldenkrais practitioner. Based on my artistic and therapeutic body-oriented work, the research addresses the relationship between the body, language, movement, and the symptomatic within the choreographic realm and beyond it. By drawing from a broader array of fields of knowledge – medicine, psychoanalysis, poetry and literature, and somatic practices – the research has expanded choreography towards disparate discourses and perceptions of the body.

The artistic research will be presented during a three-day performance program of Fantasmical Anatomies Lessons and Studies at MDT. In my studio in Pernestorfergasse 5 – which will be transferred from Vienna to MDT – I will present a collection of works, lessons, sessions, readings, and lectures of my recent research.

At the intersections of the therapeutic and the choreographic, the somatic and the poetic, I have developed several body-orientated practices based on the Feldenkrais Method’s use of language, imagination, and touch. The participants will lay down on mats during the lessons and take part in the studies. As research that foremostly takes place across bodies, Studies on Fantasmical Anatomies is always dialogical. It involves my voice, the sounds of several objects, haptic touch, and the touch of language crossing the bodies of the audience as well as my own. 

Please note that the three days of performances will be filmed in their entirety. The videos will be published and archived one the Research Catalogue platform as part of the documentation of my PhD.

The number of participants will be limited according to current Covid-19 preventive measures.I am looking forward to your participation in the live presentation of my PhD in artistic research at the MDT.
