Performance-Workshop by Jasmin Schaitl

working language: English
max participants: 15
location: SKLAD, 2nd floor (16 Ekzarh Yosif, str. in Plovdiv)

This workshop focuses on body awareness, space awareness and the creation of visible and invisible relations between our physical body and its surrounding through performative actions. Participants will be introduced to work with the immateriality of time, through excercises which heighten the awareness and our senses, to be in the present moment. We will observe our constant transformation, which manifests itself through movement and action. The workshop intends to discover new tools for performative intervention, and might open up new ways of responding to everyday situations.
This workshop can be attended by anybody interested in extending own awareness and experimenting with the body, in relation to space and time. The workshop does not require any prior experience in performance! Everybody is welcome to join the experiment.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: www.jasminschaitl.com
Jasmin Schaitl is an artist and performer with a visual arts background. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. Since 2011 she works internationally, as solo-performer, visual artist, artistic director of group performances, leads workshops and interdisciplinary projects, curates and teaches. In 2014 she received the STARTstipendium for performing arts from the Austrian Federal Chancellery Section Art.
She combines minimalism, reduction, precision and an increase of concentration, within her primarily meditative working methods. Her work in various media broaches the issue of a continuous balancing act between existing juxtapositions e.g.: presence – absence, begin – end, duration – moment, lightness – heaviness. Furthermore, her approach and interest to work with time, offers another experience of individual time perception. As a contrast to a fast-paced society, this offers a new awareness of fullness within the emptiness, an appreciation of the unspectacular. It emphasizes the underestimated meaning of beauty within details, through mere dedication on one matter.
ADATA AiR is realized by Plovdiv 2019 Foundation in partnership with Goethe-Institut Bulgarien and the Polish Institute in Sofia (Instytut Polski w Sofii). Details at ADATA AiR's facebook page.
