NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein

Vom Gehen und Tanzen

Daniela Georgieva (b. Plovdiv, Bulgaria, 1979; lives and works in Düsseldorf) makes visual art, music, performance, and dance. Movements derived from routine actions and based on improvisation are central to her transdisciplinary practice.
QUIXOTIC ESSENCE OF A BREATH MOVEMENT / 1X3 is a performance about walking, movement, and encounters between humans in three dimensions. Taking inspiration from the Judson Dance Theater, Georgieva has charted a setting for five dancers who perform individually, in duets, and as an ensemble. The score is an open arrangement of gestures and motion patterns to be adapted to the environment and situation. The process-based and constantly changing piece maps the dynamic interactions between choreographed and everyday movements, subject and object, spectators and participants.

The book QUIXOTIC ESSENCE OF A BREATH MOVEMENT / 1X3 is released on occasion of the artist’s performance series and solo exhibition of the same title at the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein. With essays by Maurice Funken, Ann-Kathrin Günzel, Vanessa Joan Müller, and Valentin Schmehl.
