Anna Konjetzky
about a session


The term “session” refers to a period during which a body meets. Limits and rules are set, stretched, or repealed to provide new experiences and insights. Munich-based choreographer Anna Konjetzky’s new piece explores the format—hence the “about” in the title— and the session itself. Being distanced and involved are not contradictions. The dancers probe the workings, history and social meaning of lust and arousal. Which movements, words and looks stimulate us? In a similar way to when we browse the Internet, some things are aroused, by chance. This in turn opens up possibilities to pursue or drift away from a theme. Elements of a lecture performance emerge. The lecture shifts, is continued in a video, then returns to the stage and is translated into movement by the dancers for the audience. Analysis and sensual experience mesh in a reflection about and with the body.
