körpermaschine #5

Jo Kolski welcomes his passengers on a transtemporal journey. Encountering fragments of George Perec, the French author of Judeo-Polish origin, this posthume dialogue raises the question of European memorial legacy – from Shtetl to Triskell.

Körpermaschine is a series of choreographic investigations of industrial society, articulating the body with kinetic sculptures. By inserting playfulness into unexpected contexts, Jo Kolski deconstructs the seriousness of functionalism.

Premiere: September 22 – 24 2023, Uferstudios, Berlin
