Black Label Movement Website

Battleground is choreographer Carl Flink’s newest work, influenced by the physicality of Bodystorming, a technique he developed with biomedical engineer David Odde, and Flink’s intellectual curiosity surrounding war, violence, and its impact on the human body. A provocative, physical, and innovative piece grounded in science, ballistic movement, and the ethical and physical consequences of violence and perpetual war, it is intended to encourage meaningful conversations about violence in its many forms as an accepted and often celebrated component of our society. Battleground will be performed outdoors in a 30×25 feet dirt pit.
