Sandra Man + Moritz Majce
CHOROS III (Koroška)


The author/choreographer Sandra Man and the visual artist/choreographer Moritz Majce, who both live in Berlin, have been working together since 2010. What distinguishes their collaboration is that they view and produce choreography not from the perspective of the performing arts but rather as a visual art: as art in space.

For the exhibition Choros III (Koroška), conceived by the duo as an artistic research project on the choir and choreography, they have developed outdoor choral constellations as a way of engaging with the specific spatial conditions of landscape as “nature,” and with the possibilities for its reception as well as with its acoustics, its prospects, and its horizon. In parallel, an exhibition will be presented at Kunstraum Lakeside that is also composed as a kind of “landscape” of various views and sounds.


The work includes various elements of the “choral,” including the ancient Greek term choros, meaning circular, sung dance; the dance floor and those who dance upon it; and the linking of dance, theater, and music. The choir is perceived as a spatial network of sensory relations: speaking, singing, looking, listening, moving, feeling. In a direct confrontation with the audience, the spatial choreography is realized independently of the media used – image, voice, sound, video, body – as a movement between all of them and the audience. Vital to this exercise is the direct encounter with the landscape of Carinthia, which served as the production setting for all voice and video recordings, all of which were made outdoors in the alpine region. Body and voice are seen as part of nature here, reacting to the weather and the topographical conditions. Reference is also made to the political and ideological appropriation of the landscape and the choir in the course of history, whereby the work does not merely take up this critical thread but rather reconceives landscape, choir, and space as a multidimensional fabric that is not there for the taking and belongs to no one.
