Unlock Body Lab Israel Aloni Online Residency Project

Showing and Workshop

 

Unlock Body Lab has invited Israel Aloni, a well-known choreographer, producer, performer, educator, to have a two-week residency project with local artists in Unlock Dancing Plaza and The Hong Kong Art Centre in October 2021. Due to the pandemic, we are trying to explore the possibility of relocating it to a virtual space.

 

For the two-week online residency project, Israel Aloni will work with local artists through various digital tools, while thinking about the possibility of cross-regional and cross-cultural collaboration in the era of the epidemic. As a choreographer, Aloni is interested in the mediation of the physical human body with other bodies, space, and its relationship to time. From the understanding of the physical body that has a connection to past events and histories, Aloni is interested in creating work that pushes the boundaries of the utterances that we let our physical body express, whether knowingly or unknowingly.
