Suomenlinna // Gropius – Two contemplations on Body, Movement and Intermateriality
Authors: Paula Kramer
Publisher: Triarchy Press (2021)
Softcover: 168 pages
Based on a 3-year site-based research project–a post-doc at Uniarts Helsinki’s Centre for Artistic Research–the book explores the author’s embodied research into intermateriality. It addresses the question that guided her research: how does movement and choreography emerge in collaboration with site? More specifically: how do bodies, materials, sites, organisms, history, tuning, training, phenomena, events, and the weather intermingle and speak, bringing forth what we later might call movement, dance, or choreography?
