Yasmin Schönmann is an artist who is interested in the human experience. The work she creates evolves around our emotional world , human connection and political and social issues. Schönmann believes that dance is storytelling - creating movement means creating a story or feeling through dance. Her artistic research is based on physical but human gestures and movement, as well as a clear story line. In Schönmann´s work the body becomes a powerful instrument to communicate and to express emotions; a specific posture, or a single movement can offer a lot of information.
Dancing in Transit #2
Dance & Choreography by Yasmin Schönmann
Installation, Video and Curation by 2050+
Hosted by Smart Life Festival Modena/ Fondazione San Carlo
Made possible by Slam Jam
DANCING IN TRANSIT #2 explores the relationship between
dancing in the physical world and dancing in the digital
world. What happens when a dancing body - a body that
uses movement as a mode of expression and
communication - is not a physical body, but a digital one?
What is lost (or gained) in the transition from one dimension
to the other? The installation consists of an interactive video
installation, created by 2050+, with a collage of the most
iconic "avatars" (i.e., dance animations) danced by
characters from Fortnite, the video game produced by Epic
Games. Inspired by this installation Yasmin Schönmann
created a pop up performance questioning our relationship to the digital world and what influence it has over us and over our bodies. This performance took place at the Smart Life Festival in Modena in one of the rooms of the Fondazione San Carlo.
