Colourful Kinesthesia

Edizalp Akin and Guillaume Slizewicz - Pink - Performance at domaine de Boisbuchet 2019 from Guillaume Slizewicz on Vimeo.

Colourful Kinesthesia is the result of the Workshop led by MischerTraxler Studio at Boisbuchet in 2019. It is a playful experiment on the meaning of colour pink and how it could be translated into movements. We started by defining words that relate to pink such as cheeky, naive, soft, artificial and fantasy. Then we attempted to translate those words into physical gestures and asked ourselves what movements could be considered as naive or cheeky, artificial or whimsical. We settled on hopping, bouncing, and running amok. The result of these experiments is the video above. The photography is by Holo Wang. It was directed, choreographed, and the outfits were designed by Edizalp Akin and Myself.
