AN HOUR WITH - Kai Merke

Get a unique insight into choreographer Kai Merke’s methods for creating choreographic material and writing somatic songs for the stage in collaboration with plants.

Kai has just finished a residency in Brussels at Les Brigittines which is the beginning of a new choreographic production under the title We Are Animated Soil. The residency took place in collaboration with performers and musicians Mei Long Bao (DE), Gérald Kurdian (BE) and Helena Dietrich (BE) and is supported by HAUT and workspacebrussels.

Kai Merke's choreographic practice has been developed through many years of artistic research in creating speculative collaborations with other-than-humans. 



'AN HOUR WITH' is an opportunity to meet artists in an informal setting, where new conversations about art can flourish. The intention is to cultivate a closer relationship with and understanding of various artistic practices and studies for inspiration for the field right now.
With 'AN HOUR WITH', we provide space for short and focused immersion in the work of an artist or artist group.
'AN HOUR WITH' is for anyone in the field of art and performing arts, national and international colleagues and other people interested in the performing arts.
