“The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the ‘state of emergency’ in which we live is not the exception, but the rule” (Walter Benjamin).
Staying Alive, the latest work of choreographer Jasna L Vinovrski, reflects on the issues of order and control in the migration of human and non-human entities. It questions how the law and its structures has had to adapt as migration in the present day evolves, and explores how a personal technological device such as the iPad can act as an agent of control over the body.
Concept, choreography & performance by Jasna L Vinovrski
Music by The Bee Gees
This work was created within a larger project, "Migrant Bodies", which was supported by the EU Culture 2007-2013 Programme. www.migrantbodies.eu
