Chorea Symbiotica is a scientific research project, dance performance and conceptual film that investigates the influence of the human gut microbiota on physical performance.
The artist will undergo six months of intensive physical training to measure the evolution in the composition of her gut microbiota. Translating the results of the metagenomic sequencing into sounds and movements, the project questions the new modes o f communication that might emerge from a better understanding of our health and of the living that creates us.
In collaboration with the division of endocrinology and microbiology at Leiden University Medical Center, NL.
