Inspiration of the Day // mor shani + paul sixta

Choreographer Mor Shani presents Love-ism in collaboration with video artist Paul Sixta, a long term study inspired by the book  “Art of Loving” by Erich Fromm. With his research Shani wishes to take a closer look on the human experience of intimacy, challenging the perception and liquidity of the agreed upon, the sublime and the condemned.

The politics of intimacy make it impossible to truly unite. Two urge driven bodies – a man and a woman- are cages in a tight composition declaring one supreme goal: to get together. In body, in mind, in spirit. inertia is their only source of faith. They are wasted, and yet, their doomed to fail, pathetic, attempts become an ode to radical romanticism – an ode to the ones who choose to keep on trying.
