Choreographer: Katia Engel (Germany/Indonesia)
From Starting to Cut the Wood is a dance based on the sounds created by a mask-maker carving his mask out of wood. The sounds blend with the carver’s spoken words. Katie Engel creates performance works, installations, videos, photographs, and documentary films. She studied dance at Dance Institute Bremen and Laban-Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies New York. Her works have been presented at many events, such as International Film Festival (Singapore), International Dance Festival Tokyo/Yokohama (Japan) and at Akademie der Künste (Berlin).
