Workshop: Geir Hytten x PRODA

"Relational Bodies"

In my practice as a dance artist, I investigate how the body can be a place and a scale for aesthetic reflections on our climate challenges. Through choreography and movement, I look at how the local, social and global body in a scenic context can be a system of organization and politics by speculative, practical and relational methods.
