In «CHUNKY», performers and audience share a common space. At the beginning, the space is empty. In the course of the performance, this space changes. The audience finds itself in a space full of soft material.
«CHUNKY» questions: How does a soft world change people and their relationships?
In «CHUNKY» Ernestyna Orlowska investigates the extent to which a fluid relationship to the world can take place on stage. Performers and spectators are together in the midst of an immersive installation: At first it is barren. Step by step it builds up, tests, changes and transforms into a poetic space that follows its own intuition and logic and celebrates physicality, contrasts and the touchingly irrational. What kind of beings do we become in this soft, chunky and elastic world? What kind of encounters become possible?
Artists from both houses visit each other’s performances. Then it’s all about big questions like:
Why do you make art? How do you do it? What comes next? The exchange lasts 40 minutes.
On 03.12, following the performance: discussion between Ernestyna Orlowska (Chunky) and Nina Langensand (Where is your Partner)
Ernestyna Orlowska’s artistic practice takes place at the intersection of visual art, choreography and performance, and deals with the human body in its various social tensions.
Her works create an idiosyncratic imaginarium populated by mysterious and often monstrous creatures that attempt to deconstruct everyday realities as contingent and non-essential. Norms and ideals are challenged, the automatisms of seeing and classifying destabilized, and attribution and categorization undermined.
