Abstract

This joint contribution by four members of Areal_Berlin approaches the topic of this Special Issue by presenting three individual but related strands of practice by dance and performance artists who specialize in working in urban and rural landscapes. The focus in each of the three contributions is on how somatic practices are employed as a means to sensitize bodies in relation to the environment and how those practices are (re-)designed in order to meet the specific demands of outdoor work. In the first part of the article, Joa Hug introduces Areal_Berlin as an association of research-oriented artists and as a habitat that has fostered the development of the three different artistic practices. In the second part, Bettina Mainz, Katja Münker and Sabine Zahn outline key aspects of their choreographic-somatic approaches to environmental research. The third section is a posed ‘interview’ and looks at possible connections between the three different choreographic-somatic approaches and the notion of ‘eco-consciousness’.
