Fantasmical Anatomy Lessons
During five intensive days in early November, choreographer, dancer, and Feldenkrais Practitioner Anne Juren offers the audience to be part of one’s own, personal fantasmical anatomy at the Tanzquartier Wien. The audience will start the days with dedicated Feldenkrais workshop, following with a public fantasmical anatomy lesson which includes poetic, fantastical, speculative imaginative dimensions. In the afternoon, sessions will turn private, the spectator will become a patient.
The next days will follow the scheme of the day before: procedures become a ritual extending the investigation of the body and its fantasmical anatomies. During this time, a lecture performance with Stefanie Wenner and Anne Juren is going to take place in the fantasmical space as a ”mise en abîme” proposing another source of knowledge and different corporeality.
