The piece is a synthesis of choreographic material and poetic stories of very personal and intimate confrontations with (self) control which thus achieve divergent spaces of perception. The texts are based on field research and interviews with people who deal with control in one way or another, such as a plastic surgeon, a ballerina, a professional athlete, a manager in a company, a politician, etc. The texts, as well as the impressions from the conversations, are adapted by Zhenya into a text, which in combination with the choreographic material, create frictions and ambiguities of images that attempt to make the mundanity, absurdity, and even banality of control structures tangible. In the post streaming talk the audience is invited to share their perception and impression, how they could connect as an audience body to the digital stories told by different perspectives on bodies.

About the performance

Leashed Unleashed

The multimedia performance Leashed Unleashed deals with control structures and their effects on our bodies. The piece is a synthesis of choreographic material and poetic stories of very personal and intimate confrontations with (self) control which thus achieve divergent spaces of perception. The choreography is inspired by field research and interviews with people who deal with adjustments of the body to (self) imposed societal mechanisms of control on a daily basis. A work-in-progress.

About the artists

Kimberly Kaviar & Zhenya Salinski

Kimberly Kaviar is a Berlin-based "performing arts collective". In 2015, Simone Gisela Weber and Juan Felipe Amaya Gonzalez met at the Inter-University Center for Dance Berlin. This encounter developed into a close and enduring working relationship. In their working methodology, they emphasise the creative potential of conflicts and differences in order to stage new performative formats. The results are interdisciplinary works that function as performative spaces of dissonance and expectation, hypothesising coexistence through collaboration with other artists, non-artists and experts from different disciplines. Together they have developed works such as "Veneralia" (2015), "3D WHITE" (2016) and "Foundation" (2017). "MANIFEST: A Work on Progress" (2017), an eight-hour performance installation, was shown in Berlin at Uferstudios. In "Retrospective: Ecology of Occupation" (2017) they experimented with the workshop format, this work was shown in the Super Local Berlin series by Constanza Macras/DorkyPark at Studio Verlin and was invited to the Performatica Festival in Puebla, Mexico. In 2018 they developed choreographic material for the piece "Perfect Romance" by the performance group The Agency, which was shown at Münchner Kammerspiele and FFT Düsseldorf. Kimberly Kaviar was selected for LAFT Berlin's Newcomer mentoring programme in 2018 and mentored by curator Ricardo Carmona in Berlin until the end of 2019.
