die Körper - der Norm

die Körper, der Norm – dance project (2017),

is a dance project which explored the impact of social norms on female bodies. Fifteen young women* took part in this dance project, asking questions like:  

How do we perceive norms and in which way do they affect our bodies? What does it mean to fulfill a norm and how can I emancipate of societies codes and stereotypes? Using creative bodywork, the participants examined the structural effects of dependence and norm behavior. The discussion and acceptance of one's own body were a particular focus of the artistic process. 

The performance and result of the project has been showed on November 21.st 2017 in WUK Wien and on 14.th February in Dschungel Wien.
