How to seduce a world The Posing Project series tell about the art of being, of impressing, of seduction and the art of modelling a multilayered body with black humour and ambidextrous virtuosity into a weird and impressive personality. Impressive stereotypes are advertised to seduce. In this environment not the pose by itself but the method of posing is the main focus. Posing Project investigates the art of innovative profiling and its direct influence on the recipient. It researches cultural patterns of communication. In this case the pose is the expression of an attitude which transports complex denotations in a social context. liquid.loft is interested in the relationship between contemporary dance and other contemporary art genres and therefore creates its own forms of development and improvisation. The current method of working with acoustic spaces on stage can be read as individual style of liquid.loft. www.liquidloft.at Organisation: SODAart, Jessica Wyschka liquidloft@sodaart.at
