Thinging (Show)

February 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thinging is a visceral reaction to the world of things we are living in. It thinks and it sings. The stage becomes a space of contact for the living and non-living matter; an environment where things can relate, communicate and coexist, perhaps revealing a different side. The piece works with spaces of being in-between – between objects and subjects, between existence, speculative existence and non-existence, inaction and activity, saturation, calmness and emptiness, light, dusk and darkness, quotidian, mysterious and poetic, as well as between individual present bodies.

Thinging is challenging anthropocentric thinking by searching for alternative modes of cohabitation of things in a time of threatening global ecological catastrophe and oversaturation with objects in contemporary Western life.

Jan Rozman is a dancer, choreographer, performer, and performance maker based between Ljubljana and Berlin. In his artistic practice, he’s engaged with extended bodies and material semiotics in a search of relevant performative articulations for the post-internet/Anthropocene era. Jan completed a master’s degree at SODA, HZT Berlin. He created several author works, most recently Thinging, MEMEMEME and THINGS THING. He received several awards for his work, most recently the main prize at Gibanica, the biennial of Slovenian contemporary dance art.
