Ola Maciejewska | Loie Fuller: Research

Sun 9 June 2019

In Loie Fuller: Research, choreographer and performer Ola Maciejewska critically appropriates the ‘Dancing Dress’ invented by Loie Fuller, one of the most recognized dance artist of Modernism. Loie Fuller: Research it’s a playful display of shape-shifts set-up as two exercises that reflect on the relation between the sculpture and the sculptor. It’s a physical practice stimulating the movement of matter receiving form, a movement that emerges as a result of the relationship between the human body and the object: ‘dancing dress’. The idea of the exercise does not aim at strengthen-ing the impulse to live a physical relationship with things; instead it focuses on facilitating forms that make that relationship visible.
