Jija Sohn, Aleksandra Lemm and Julia Reist
Landing on Feathers - embodied care-practices
Elmer Kouwenbergs became paralyzed 28 years ago. His caregiving team consists of three care providers/artists. In May 2021 they started a creative research trajectory into care, closeness and our relationship to the other.
Choreographer Jija Sohn, performer Aleksandra Lemm, and researcher and dramaturge Julia Reist share their perspectives on embodied care-practices from a personal and collective experience. Within the practice, limitations are not simply experienced, but deeply acknowledged throughout the trajectory, as an intrinsic part of the practice. During Cement, the artists share their research in a safe and intimate setting, inviting you to reflect on care, closeness and our relationship to the other.
There will be an invitation to take off your shoes and participate in embodiment practices. You are free to choose whether or not to participate.
