SNIFF: Scent in Movement

 

9 July. 2018, 19:30h

Top Schiller Palais

Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin, Germany

 

With Anna d'Errico

 

The Smell Lab is teaming up with Neuroscientist and independent performer Anna D’Erico to present one evening of scent and movement explorations in Berlin! 

What happens to your body when you smell your favorite odor? And a disgusting one? How your feelings and reactions translate to your body language, do they make you move? Or do you feel stuck? Or, perhaps do you relax and enjoy yourself in stillness?
In this workshop, we will use some basic principle techniques of relaxation, respiration and gentle movement to explore our reaction to a scent. We will put odors and movement in dialogue, and everyone could create his own scent-in-move sequence.

Who can participate: everyone.
What to bring: comfortable clothes, socks (if you need) to be able to walk without shoes, and your nose. 
Duration: 1,5h

Free of charge (we will be happy to welcome donations at the door).

SNIFF: Scent & Space

 

9 FEBR. 2018, 19:30h

Top Schiller Palais

Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin, Germany



With Elise Mattisson Chue, Klara Ravat and Gert-Jan Stam (TAAT).

How do scent and people interact in a particular place or space?
Can we direct people's behavior through implementing a scent design in a specific place? How do people operate when a certain aroma is spread in the public transport? What are their reactions?

During the 19th edition of the Smell Lab we explore the spatial aspect of scent, with two presentations:

Elise Mattisson Chue and Klara Ravat will present their collaborative efforts, an experiment on scent and public space. For the last weeks, Elise and Klara have been investigating inside the public transportation wagons of Berlin other public locations. Wearing unexpected scents and walking through the length of the trains, they want to figure out, how reactive people are to their aromatic environment. During their presentation, they will share their findings.

We are very proud to also host Gert-Jan Stam, an artist, writer and the co-founder of TAAT, a collective operating on the cutting edge of theatre, architecture, visual art and design. He will present the last project within this context: HALL06, an architectonic theatre play which incorporates scent to bring the audience together within a certain wooden structure. After the presentations, there will be time for questions and discussion.
