Listening and Mapping as Choreographic Tool of Getting Lost
Workshop on Listening and Mapping at SDV/G, St Petersburg, in collaboration with choreographer Eli Eli, 2019.
How can we travel through spaces and worlds as a conscious listening practice? How can we refuse the traditional tourist ways of consuming cultural differences and the picturesque? How can we collect experiences rather than images while at the same time, question the very notion of collection? Drawing inspiration by works of Pauline Oliveros and Maria Lugones we are practicing listening and "world"-travelling as methods of collaboration. Looking at the map as a translation we are using mapping as a practice for navigating/getting lost while "world"-travelling. This practicum which will focus on mapping in relation to listening. We will practise drawing connections and listen to our surroundings through uses of choreographic scores / Eli & Elina on practicum.
