Details
In this workshop I will propose to work with both models: on a first stage we will work from a given situation and, on a second, we will condition/create together a situation from which we will work on following the same logic.

We will work in rounds and make a break after each exercise to discuss it. At the end we will extend the discussion and compare both models, share our impressions and thoughts about it.

This kind of work demands patience, listening and the acceptance/trust that a state of not knowing can perhaps bring up something interesting and unexpected. We go slowly and together, growing as a collective which emancipates after sometime and finds its own rhythm and way of working.

Vera Sofia Mota:
Vera Sofia Mota (Espinho, 1982) is a Portuguese artist based in Berlin since 2011. She studied choreography, performance, philosophy and yoga in Portugal, Holland, Germany and India and has been working in these areas. She emphasizes the work with Portuguese choreographer João Fiadeiro and RE.AL in Lisbon during 2006-10, where she did her first creations, and the long-term collaboration with Dutch dramaturge Fransien van der Putt since 2010 in different projects and contexts. Her research project at the MA at ArtEZ in Holland (2014-16) was entitled 'Multiplicity in Practice: Emergent Compositions' - a study of how 'many things' can/do relate ecologically in art and life and how this plurality of relationships can be practiced (political-)ethically and artistically. At the invitation of LIMA Amsterdam and in collaboration with Fransien van der Putt, Vera has been researching the work of video pioneer, visual and performance artist, Nan Hoover (New York, 1931 - Berlin, 2008) since 2015.
