From 2017 – 2019 recoil are researching, producing and presenting The Membrane Project – a series of choreographies; that questions our understanding of the human and of the humane. The aim of the project is to challenge the understanding of our human identity though the encounter with otherness. Encounters materialized in three Works; as I collapse (2017), MASS – bloom explorations (2018) & Extended falls to humanity (2019), that in different ways stages the punctured human ego as a means towards sensitivity across biological diversity as well as between humans.
