Sono-Choreographic Collective for transdisciplinary art and research: Kerstin Ergenzinger, Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari and Kiran Kumar

Instrumentalities for Common Grounds

The circumpolar region of the Arctic is the fastest warming place on earth. Working with data from the Permafrost research group at Alfred-Wegener-Institut Potsdam and the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, the Sono-Choreographic Collective undertook an artistic scientific project titled ‘Common Grounds’, on embodied permafrost data sonification – a collaboration between climate research, sonic arts and science communication, harnessing the theatrical apparatus.

In this participatory lecture concert, the collective will unpack aspects of their work in ‘Common Grounds’, presenting some of the methods they developed for listening, sensing and understanding climate change from an embedded perspective. These include various scaling techniques that come together to establish mental-mergings, giving access to sensing planetary phenomena and thus connecting the macro-global perspective with the microcosms of individual participants.

Lecture concert in English language

Coming from practices of sculpture, music and dance, we, Kerstin Ergenzinger, Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari and Kiran Kumar, initiated the Sono-Choreographic Collective for transdisciplinary art and research. Our work distils into sound and object making, as well as movement and writing. At the core of our collaborative practice is play: We play intentionally to seek, affirm and share a life-ness, which we see as so important to the world today. We play our self-made research instruments, and also our human body-mind. We play attentively with notions of subtlety, embodiment and consciousness through the arts.

Kerstin Ergenzinger is a visual artist working across the fields of installation, electronic arts, sound and drawing. The inextricable relations between body and world, perception and the perceived, sensing and sense making are central themes of her practice.

Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari is a composer and artist, working across a broad spectrum of practices to embody and re-ritualise ways of sounding as an alternative mode of being. Exploring a plethora of artistic strategies his work attempts to navigate the physical, political and spiritual turbulences of our world.

Kiraṇ Kumār is a dance artist, researcher and writer. His work approaches the human body-mind through a trifold practice of dance as art, science and spi/ritual across performance, publication and visual art contexts.
