About Aniela and the residency

During this residency Aniela will be reworking audio scores made during the covid lockdowns into live movement material. Moving inwards to then extend outwards, the choreographic idea rests on the centrality of the body’s sensorial capacity to experience itself anew by fine tuning and practising greater awareness through the exploration of specific somatic scores. Through this residency they will be looking to find a form of more personal movement that derives from a deeper authenticity of performance. A performance mode that is willing to bring chronic pain into the choreographic process and that can communicate more freely with an audience from a place of connection from within; creating a mode of ‘witnessed being’. This process aligns with overall ambitions to attempt to create a nuanced and complex counterpoint to the pervasive status quo maintained between ‘the healthy’ and ‘the ill’ and is invested in re-prioritising the performing body after a period of projects supporting others.
