Rósa Ómarsdóttir (IS/BE): Ooophilia

Ooophilia is working-title for a research where Rósa attempts to explore object oriented ontological perspectives onto her dancing. Her interest in nature, more particularly her and other humans' relation to it, will continue in this research, but instead of seeing nature as a fourth wall concept, as something outside of us, something for humans to visit in their leisure time, Rósa tries to find a nature within things, herself and the environment, or a type of an ecology without nature, and in that way going away from the concept of nature again. During this research she will explore the ecology of movements, sounds, bodies, body-sounds, vocal sounds, objects, objective movements, and subjective things, where the nature is within the body and all around
