Ofelia Jarl Ortega
Ofelia Jarl Ortega is a Chilean-Swedish choreographer and performer based in Stockholm. Her work centers around vulnerability and femininity, often with a suggestive erotic aesthetic; lately a notion of “voluntary objectification” has been at the core for her investigations. She holds a diploma from The Royal Swedish Ballet School (2010) and a MA in Choreography from SKH, Stockholm (2014). Her works have been shown at venues such as ImPulsTanz (Vienna), MDT (Stockholm), Inkonst (Malmö), Arsenic (Lausanne), Black Box Teater (Oslo) and Setu Festival (Elliant, Bretagne).
About the class:
In this class we will explore possibilities for collective risk taking. We will line out a common ground for departure from which we start to negotiate time, space and limits. Gazing is one of the tools we’ll use. We will also say no, look away and think together about power in the room we create. There will be authentic movement, but where the witness has the major role. Music will also be a vehicle.
