about us

 

The artist group possible.movement, founded in 2009, concerns itself with the interface between choreography, drawing and composition and presents the results of their research in different performances and installations. The individual artists from the group come from different art forms – dance, music and visual art.

 

The aim of the group is to find the form of communication as an artistic praxis and the exchange between the individual arts in order to overcome the traditional definition of the separate categories, without however the borders between the art forms absolute to abandon.

 

In fact possible.movement is interested in making the productive potential of the manifold interference between graphic, sound, movement and body accessible and to understand the
borders between the art forms as regions of the interference. For that purpose the collective compositions-, improvisations- and notation strategy are developed in order to show the experience of the interaction between the different artistic forms of expression and medias and to abandon the hierarchy between the art forms.

The artistic process and its performance is possible.movement’s focus.

Since 2010 is the key aspect of the work from possible.movement the examination of landscapes and locations. In doing so performantive answers and reflections are developed throughout the rehearsal process, which are based on the research of particular locations. The musicality, the quality of the graphic and the movements of the locations are developed into collective compositions. The compositions refers to the consistency, the structure and the manifold textures of the locations: water, wind, flora and fauna, urban structures etc. It occurs, due to this collective exchange from the different materials, a fitting together of sensuous-artistic perspectives of these locations or landscapes. The aim of this work is to abdicate to representative and figurative presentation and instead to make the locations and landscapes, which has been worked with, emerge in a new performative way.

 

The ensemble possible.movement is a collaboration between

 

Johanne Castillo Bro (documentation + dance),

Claudia Garbe (choreography + dance),

Daniel Vezza (composition + accordeon)

and Ingolf Watzlaw (visual art).
