Wen Hui

Strategies for self-healing

Mousonturm Probebühne 2


In today’s world, our bodies are in an unprotected situation. Whether it is from war, enforced isolation, a plethora of family chores, or work relationships, our bodies are forced into a state of ‘not knowing where they are.’ We desperately need to see, hear and feel the rationality of our bodies’ existence. Wen Hui, a dance choreographer and filmmaker from China, has long been concerned with the institutional control and oppression of the female body. Studying the body as a repository and archive of personal memory, she traces the residues that social life leaves on each individual’s body. Wen Hui will lead us through subtle, physical exercises, such as exploring the flow of blood and saliva, to see or hear the physicality and subtle forms within our own bodies.

Participation in the workshop is possible for everyone – regardless of age or professional background.
