SoloPerDiskurs / Annika Pannito
Wie verändern Raumbedingungen den Tanz? Annika Pannitos Choreografie ist ein Ergebnis ihrer Forschungsarbeit 'Piazza', die 2014 begann. Mit 'Piazza' meint sie einen architektonischen Raum, der gleichzeitig auch öffentlichen Raum darstellt, um Ideen und Gedanken auszutauschen.

Where are you now?
- I am physically in Madrid, Spain. I am also in a very interesting moment of my life and work, re- thinking myself as a choreographer, questioning my work and looking for new forms to expand my practice.
Is there a place you would prefer to be right now?
- I must say that I am quite happy with my current position!
What is your approach to space?
- Space is one of my main interests and a fundamental topic of my work. I approach space in different ways and I am learning to look at it as a topic from different angles. When I practice, I like to approach space in a physical way, observing the characteristics of the studio,theater or site where I happen to move. I then try to establish a dialogue with it and the spaces of my own body to see what conditions might arise and possibly be the ground for a movement research. In my current project, the question what kind of space does a dance generate, how that specific space can be experienced as 'common' and how space gains signification and purpose and is distributed within a choreographic frame is a central topic. In that sense, I am approaching space more as a situation and an environment where questions and thoughts can arise and initiate a dialogue among the ones present during a performative event.
What does GROUND CONTROL mean to you?
- My first thought goes to an impossible thing to do. also, a posture from a martial art immediately pops up in my head. My second thought goes to rules and principles that I use, for instance, as an attempt to control and direct a creative process. GROUND CONTROL makes me also think of knowledge of/over something, or at least the process of production of a certain knowledge. GROUND CONTROL is perhaps a condition that allows to question that knowledge and open up to other influences and expertise.
