A Historical Tracing and Reproduction of the Motion between the Human Body and Industrial Artefacts

Inspired by the post-industrial romanticism of the city of Berlin, A Historical Tracing and Reproduction of the Motion between the Human Body and Industrial Artefacts is a dance piece for one body and five industrial objects. Against the background of the increasing immateriality of work, choreographer I Jung Lim proposes a radical (re)consideration of the relationship between the body and industrial artefacts by undermining concepts of identity, function, mechanics and materiality.
Lim transforms historical documents and theories from science of work and industrial psychology into choreographic material, interwoven with Donna Haraway’s visions of natural-technical evolutionary narratives.
As the first of a series of choreographic explorations in industrial contexts, the piece can be seen as an investigation between dance as art and dance as physical culture, questioning the dualism between organic and inorganic, between artificial and natural, between dance and work, and offering a contemplative and intense visual and sensorial experience.
