A traveler encounters landscapes impacted by the climate crisis to recalibrate the body as a site of entangled forces.
Between summer 2022 and spring 2023, Hannah Schillinger embarks on small journeys throughout Germany to encounter landscapes impacted by the climate crisis, investigating the forces and resonances interweaving these places and her own body. Amongst them are the disappearing glacier „nördlicher Schneeferner“ on the Zuspitze, the burned forests of Saxon Switzerland and the coal mine „Welzow Süd“ in Brandenburg.
360° video documentations of those meetings, physical remnants and body memory become the source material for „screen play“, Hannah Schillinger’s first work after graduating from the MA Choreography at HZT Berlin. In dialogue with video, sound and light, Schillinger explores the body as a virtual screen and traveller. Navigating through co-existing micro worlds, she plays with transmitting and transmuting images and forces. Sculptural fragments, movement experiences, emotional and reflective spaces become activated, until spheres begin to blur and body and space become reconfigured.
