Patricia Carolin Mai
Patricia Carolin Mai produces stage pieces as a dancer and choreographer with production locations at Kampnagel and at K3 - Hamburg, at LOFFT - DAS THEATER Leipzig and at Ringlokschuppen Mülheim an der Ruhr. The focus of her choreographic work is the investigation of the body as a central repository of memories. 2016 - 2019 she developed her trilogy on "bodies in extreme states" with the pieces Ready to Snap (2016), Balagan Body (2018) & HAMONIM (2019). In summer 2019, she accepted Ninety9 Art Company's invitation to Seoul in Korea to work in GAL-GAL on women's self-empowerment in Korean society. For this work she was awarded the "International Choregraphy Award Goyang 2020". In 2020, she explored the limits of her physical performance in the 12-month solo self-experiment KONTROL, questioning cultural normalisations of body and gender. She choreographed ASTERISM (2021) and ANIMA (2022) by multimedia composer Alexander Schubert, as well as the group piece OR (2022) for the Company of the Leipzig Dance Theatre. For the years 2020 - 2023 Patricia Carolin Mai has received conceptual funding from the City of Hamburg and continues with WAHN, UND SO KAMEN WIR ZUSAMMEN and RAUSCH. Eine Revision (AT), she continues her work on the theme of "Practices of Community". In 2023, together with 100 participants and in co-production with Kampnagel and K3, she will venture a look at the history of Tanzwut and complete the trilogy.
