LIVE – The Boundless Body #2 is a workshop and performance for you and your bacteria. It is also a DIY laboratory where your bacteria gets a new life outside your body – where they meet other bacteria and become part of a newly-bacterial body, a being set in the world of us.
LIVE – The Boundless Body # 2 is initiated by recoil performance group, and is one of a series of studies of the microscopic organisms that effortlessly moves crisscrossing between us. It is a choreography study of our bodies as a vast myriad of not only cells but also viruses, fungi and bacteria. Latest research shows that hosting microorganisms can affect both mood and the desire to be in contact with others. With the LIVE project recoil performance group sets focus on the boundary between mikrobiomes and thus own body and the bodies of others. What does it do to our perception of ourselves and others that we are part of a larger habitat?
Duration: 60 min.
