transformers#1Associated Artist/ Karin Pauer
Karin Pauer presents the first part of her performance series called transformers. Investigating evolution, change and transformation, she is using the sculptural and organic body to create a conceptual space for hosting transformation. In an attempt to locate her self and her body on a cosmic scale she proposes to focus on the potentiality of the now. transformers is the starting point for an experiment which appeals to the flexibility of the mind and the ability to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and surroundings. The person i am now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people, i have ever been and as all the life-forms that preceeded me and which will follow. transformers is a practice of change, is a constant search of the next form, is an attempt at becoming the being one was always meant to be. is a scultpural, organic dance set against the backdrop of eternity. is five hundred thousand years of movement. Supported by danceWEB in the frame Life Long Burning, a project supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.
