about a session
a dance piece by Anna Konjetzky
The term session means a meeting that is limited in time. Borders and rules are established, stretched or repealed in order to make new experiences and knowledge possible. The new piece by the choreographer Anna Konjetzky, who resides in Munich, addresses the about – and sessions as such. Being distant and being involved are not a contradiction. ABOUT A SESSION melds sensual experience and analysis, and is thus an act of contemplation about and with bodies. Can reflecting on or discussing arousal actually arouse? Can it stimulate the audience’s sexual fantasies? In the audience’s minds, a number of images of desire overlap in the contradiction or the doubling of word and image. In thinking about and with the body, analysis and sensual experience intertwine.
ABOUT A SESSION takes place in English.
