Welcoming bangaloREsident Lina Gomez at Attakkalari

A choreographer by profession Lina is interested in prompt endless transformations of the body which she wants to execute in her class and space, and also be aware of the specific quality of movement these transformations create. This is developed through involving both dancers and audience in a journey through images, textures and forms, playing with the experiences of feeling, seeing, hearing, and awakening the intensity and the insanity of the imagination.” She is a part of the bangaloREsidency@Attakkalari which commences from October 29 and wishes to establish a common ground where all the singularities, different artistic approaches and diverse backgrounds of the participants could dialogue and give life to a collective and specific way of work. During the two-months residency, her aim is to collect needs and wishes from the people involved in the process, which will be the fuel for the creation of a collective choreography.

The bangaloREsidency is designed as a long-term collaboration between the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Bangalore and various innovative and discerning contemporary art / cultural spaces and partners in Bangalore to involve mutual exchange so that both the visiting artists from Germany and the local community reap the benefit of fresh perspectives and expanding horizons.
