2nd artistic part of Simo Kellokumpu's doctoral artistic research project.
#CHARP is a choreographic work and video installation in the Theatre Space. The work shares the specific choreographic practice that is developed through the artistic processes and works done in Kellokumpu’s doctoral artistic research project. Kellokumpu calls this practice ‘Choreography as a reading practice’. #CHARP exposes, and experiments with, the choreographic reading practice, its embodiment, and its materialization with three performers.
#CHARP forms with planetary and intergalactic movements and extends the history of site-specificity towards interplanetary scale. The work explores the contextual, situational, planetary, and intergalactic movements that set the conditions for the choreographic embodiment to emerge. How to take place in and with the movements that extend from microscopic beyond telescopic vision? How to embody (hyper-)reading of the planetary movements that set conditions for the choreographic to emerge? What happens to movement when it is mediated to choreography?
