How does your body feel today? In this time of velocity, violence and chaos, choreographer and performer André Uerba explores intimacy as a practice of being together, along with five performers and a musician, in his new work “Æffective Choreography”, which premieres at this year’s edition of Radialsystem’s SENSE series. The performance plays with the boundaries between sharing and withdrawing, movement and stillness, beauty and deception; the performers structure their encounter through a slow pace, propelling their bodies to attune, sink and merge together, refining their present moment.

The desire to make hidden things visible is unfolded by their intimate gestures. Collectively they turn their gaze to inner landscapes where slowness and touch become a main practice. Their bodies resemble a choir that acknowledges the group as a body itself.

André Uerba began his research on rehearsing intimacy during the process of “Burn Time” (2018) and continued through “Fire Starter” (2019/20), “Inviting Moments of Stillness” and “A hole the size of your touch” (2021). “Æffective Choreography” marks a new chapter in the research and is reinforced by his current training in bodywork by the Institute for Somatic Learning, Sexuality and Bodywork (ISB Berlin).
