A somatic portrait of Liz King
In 2010 Liz King, 62 year old dancer, choreographer and pioneer of the Austrian dance scene with an eventful history, asked Georg Blaschke to create a solo for her. Numerous conversations, interviews and the collecting of documentary material allow the biographical positioning of a personality who has experienced the whole gamut of exposure to the public as a female artist.
The public persona Liz King is juxtaposed by an intimate and sensitive private space.
Rehearsal room: the body as a memories’ storage of dance technique, lived motherhood and somatic transformation processes. Georg Blaschke remains close to this body rendering a new interpretation of articulation and spatial tendencies to consider the body as an actual and essential happening. The choreographic structure follows the logics of self-awareness as a tool of differentiation for movement and its representation in space.
“Accomplishment: to make works in the face of the void to gain form, identity.”
