Post-soviet body Lab
During more than 50 years every morning in every soviet apartment the radio transmitted “the morning gymnastics” – the set of 15 exercises, which were instructed by the voice and accompanied with the piano. The whole society participated in this invisible performance making the same movements in they own appartments.
Post-soviet body research group worked in May 2017 at the House of Dance ZIL in Moscow.
10 people took part in 9 day research process about the origin of moving patterns in post-soviet body. We focused on the private body, the public body, as well as the traditions of the fest and the celebration, tracing the movements inherited in the body down to the times when we were not even born.
The raised movement material was categorised and turned into the collection, set of preserved patterns, which can be later used in dramaturical work.
