IN DUO WITH EARTH a PhiloPhysical Dance performance lecture created and performed by Birgitte Skands
In duo with Earth
is a 40 minute walk/talk and dance piece; a movement reflection on the global body, on life and on circular time. In this piece Birgitte Skands will put some Hellenistic philosophy on the floor, looking at the bodily aspect of the history of philosophy while moving and holding the earth close to her. She will -in this dance- take a ride with Diogenes, address different forms of alienation, the state of humanity under pressure and break into conversations between Marx and Marcuse about inner home and the possibility of change through bodywork and the imaginary.

is a 40 minutes-walk /talk and dance piece; done as a movement of work reflection on the global body, life, and circular time. In this piece, Birgitte Skands will put some Hellenistic philosophy on the floor, look into the bodily aspect of the history of philosophy while moving, and always carrying Earth with her, under her arm. She will – in this dance – take a walk with Diogenes, address different ways of alienation, the state of humanity being under pressure, and break into conversations between Marx and Marcuse about inner residence, and the possibility of change through bodywork, sensitivity and imagination.
