Lost!: A joyful body (Ioannis Avakoumidis)

How does the body remember and connect to past joy, desire, and movements?

Ioannis Avakoumidis is Berlin-based dancer and choreographer. On August 14. 2021, he improvised the process in which the body recalled the choreography he performed in the past. This performance evokes movements in the past the emotions associated with them which have been lost in the present. How does the body remember past joys, desires, and movements? The body’s memory connotes a manifestation of time. We explored the memory of the body in relation to the notion of performativity.
