Austrian choreographer Doris Uhlich presents “More Than Naked” at the Israel Festival.
“Without the body, you cannot do anything. You cannot write an email or make a phone call. Everything starts from it. I’m able to deal and concentrate on the body as a point of departure, an archive of our biography and also of the world. The body is a storage system; we store the world in our body. It’s very complex to deal with our body. In More Than Naked, we shake our flesh. I always say that when I shake the flesh and the body, I shake the archive and the system.
The body is a brain. When I shake it, I active and mobilize my system,” she says.
For Uhlich, nudity is not a provocation or a show stopper, it’s a necessity.
