Pawel born in Poland in 1989, lives in Vienna and works in the context of dance, theatre and performance. Dance education at the Anton Bruckner Private University in Linz. In 2015 he started the performance project #onlyloveisreal with Laura Eva Meuris. #onlyloveisreal is a long-term research project dedicated to the multidimensional aspects of love. Today, Pawel is a conscious sexuality practicioner. He focused his artistic practice around the topics of intimacy, love, care and sensuality. Feeling the importance to react towards violence and hate which is growing because of insensibilisation and empathic anaesthesia, current national segregation linked to fear and predominance of normative perceptions Pawel sensed a need to bring to the foreground, question and rephrase how we connect and relate to each other as human beings. Pawel cultivates tenderness.
THE EROTIC OF SELF CONSTRAINT. TRANSCENDING PHYSICALITY.
In this workshop, we physically limit ourselves to simulate a physical disability in order to break familiar processes and patterns.
In this practise there are some parallels to other BDSM practises which deal with restriction and immobilisation of the body.
Within our approach we want to investigate the sensation of a restricted body and we translate it into a movement.
It allows us to question our own perception of being attractive and sexy when the body language is not fully available.
We don‘t aim to manifest the status.
In opposition to other BDSM practises we want to question what does it mean to be active when your body is partly immobilised.
Within this approach we relate to the role of being active/passive as a fluid and transformative quality of an physical interplay.
We would like to invite you to a micro movement universe and a detailed exploration.
The emphasis lays on the intensity of the movement and the encounter, not its size.
Physical and emotional tuning will allow us to become one and symbiotically experience each other.
It‘s also a place to explore verbal and non verbal communication.
We take our time.
We discover our body beyond the norm.
Playful, open, humorous, mindful, sensual...
