Open Studio: MY BODY IS NO EXCUSE! Kieron Jina (ZA)
The participants will playfully explore chance as a choreographic tool for the creation of a stage performance. Improvisation and play will be explored. There will be tasks in which the participants make their own experiences by trusting their mistakes and letting choreography happen by chance. The threshold of the body to comfort and discomfort is explored. In this performance workshop a practice of personal performative body proximity will be explored. How far are you willing to go? Anyone can participate in this workshop.
Kieron Jina uses performance and video art, choreography and photography to tell personal stories with an activist background and to question stereotypical ideas. He graduated from the Johannesburg University of the Witwatersrand and won the performance art prize at 200 Young South Africans: Arts and Culture of The Mail and The Guardian. Kieron Jina is founder and curator of Queer Art Night South Africa and is currently touring with the productions “#FemmeInPublic”, “Down to Earth” and “PINK MON€Y”.
