Dance Ordinance


Who is the master who makes the bass beat?
Liberation and dissolution of the limits - these are often used as descriptive traits of the ‘rave', a site for emancipation enhanced by a series of well-known and coordinated technologies of ecstasy.
Although, the suspension of disbelief is a luxury for just a few. From the security teams to the gendered toilets, curfew hours and sound limiters, many are the apparatuses designed to shape, control, ban or shut down. There can be no unbridled ambition of utopia but rather a constant negotiation with the rules and social order. We can abide, bypass and subvert, resist or become invisible, but the dance cannot be stopped.
Dance Ordinance will look into the regulations and interferences that operate on clubbing politics in different historical and geopolitical contexts while giving particular insight to narratives of resistance by communities of ravers, artists and party-collectives. With the duration of one or two days, it is presented as a platform that merges performance, installation, sound, talks and curation, including the participation of various agents from the scene.

Guests will include Mariana Vieira, Julius Pristauz, among others. I lived in Vienna and I’ll reach out some musicians, DJs, curators, promoters, dancers, performers, and will try to articulate them in the project.
