    Kampnagel – K3

In a gravitational field, choreographic layers appear that repeat themselves, open up geometric grids and form polyphonic rhythms. The space becomes a movement, a wave, a field. Space happens and we become part of the event. In her choreographic research, Maria Zimpel refers to quantum physics, quantum gravity and perception in motion. With modular choreographic systems, she frees physicality and creates her own dance language. The space becomes movement and the body to space. Can you hear the room dancing?

Maria Zimpel studied dance and choreography at HZT at University of Arts in Berlin. In her works she explores limits of physicality and focuses on creating her own dance language.
She was introduced to GYROTONIC® and elements of Gyrokinesis by Harumi Terayama in Berlin in 2018, during a dance production. All of her teachers are dancers connected to ballet and/or contemporary dance.
Her choreography Noish~ has been awarded Aerowaves20 in 2016. She is an author of many solo and collaborative projects. Her works were shown in Austria, Poland, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia and other places.
During the K3 residency Maria continued to follow her interest regarding the relations between sensing, inteligent body, Spacetime and movement. In her choreographic research she draws on quantum physics and broadly understood perception in movement. It explores the idea of dance as an elementary force creating and transforming places. Places are not static. They appear and disappear, open and close in accordance to the quality of actions they welcome. The notion of place as dance-based event is explored via movement research and a dialogue between music, light, space design and dance.

About TanzHochDrei:

Every year in March and April, K3 presents three world premieres by three young international choreographers. As a conclusion of each season's residency programme, K3 offers a unique opportunity for all the curious and cross-border dance-aficionados to see the works created by the choreographers in residence.
