Nothing works (Shakira, Shakira) – Les Etudes Madonna
As part of their research and the idea of pelvic rotation, Križaj and Wehrli have developed a workshop in which they guide participants through the various phases of their process. In doing so, they do not strive to create a specific style or methodology, but try to question and always redefine the common practice that arises from the pelvic circulation as a motive for the emergence of movement, sound, and visual material. They understand the pelvis as an engine that invites other elements
into motion (the voice, writing, drawing, etc.). And even if their practice doesn't tend toward twerking, belly dancing, or other forms of esoteric practices, it can happen that it collides into their immediate vicinity.
Jasmina Križaj and Simon Wehrli's collaboration began in 2011. Together they have created the following performances: False Entries (2012), Greatest Hits (2013), Nature Poetry (2018), Deep Purple vol. 1 (2019) and Nothing Works (Shakira, Shakira) – duet (2019). In their projects they research how specific movement develops through an amplitude of time, and how it might be sensorically transmitted to the audience. In addition to physical research, they have
also developed a method for documenting their work in the form of writings, poetry, images, and sound. Sometimes, the so-called by-products become part of the choreography.
