flow - Linga & Keda
The astonishing performance of animal’s group movements, such as benches of sardine or flocks of birds, led choreographers Katarzyna Gdaniec and Marco Cantalupo to explore the mechanisms that allows keeping coordination in collective synchronous movements. The behavioral rules observed in nature, which regulate this spatial cohesion, have inspired us a new form of organization of group movement based on the collective consciousness in space, rather than on an inflexible choreographic score.
This project questions us about the relationship between the individual and the group, the limits between construction and instinct.
