Hannah De Meyer / hi baubo

Hannah De Meyer / hi baubo

In 2018, Hannah De Meyer wrote and performed the hypnotising new skin. In this production, which was part of this year’s Rakete festival at TQW, she fuses the growing indignation of a new generation of young people about our wrecked world with a highly personal “awakening”: new skin as a door to a new awareness, with alternative stories about what success, prosperity and a thriving society can be.

Christine Gaigg / 2nd nature

Jen Rosenblit / I’m Gonna Need Another One

„We are left with a floating map without landmarks, an illegible city plan, suggesting that being lost is a valid location.“ — Jen Rosenblit„Disarming, unpredictable and potent.“ — Cindy Sibilsky, broadwayworld.comParts of things are in the painful process of becoming whole things themselves. I’m Gonna Need Another One troubles the authentic and singular self by elevating the inevitability of things falling apart.

Alja Lobnik / Contemporary Dance Between Body and Language

Alja Lobnik / Contemporary Dance Between Body and Language

By presenting a short genealogy of the relationship between body and language, I will centre my lecture on dance practices that started to play with the dismantling of the ontological relationship between movement and body, especially in conceptual dance in the 90s. In its beginnings, contemporary dance established itself namely as an autonomous aesthetical form, with the body as the origin of movement that needs no intermediaries the way other art forms do, that needs no language or object, and therefore positions itself even in a certain ontological pole position. However, with the rise of conceptual dance, a schism occurred in the field of contemporary dance: a clash between pure dance (where one dances), and the so-called conceptual dance.

DD Dorvillier & Zeena Parkins / Danza Permanente & Captiva

DD Dorvillier & Zeena Parkins / Danza Permanente & Captiva

When Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his String Quartet No. 15 in A minor, op. 132 in Vienna almost two centuries ago, the composer was almost completely deaf. For Danza Permanente, choreographer DD Dorvillier and composer Zeena Parkins have translated compositional structures and tonal qualities of the score into dance movements. The four dancers are each assigned to one of the four instruments. The choreography follows the musical notation down to the finest nuances and interweaves the dancing voices into an intense and dynamic stream of movement. The dancers are music made visible without the music being audible.

Bojana Kunst / The Labour of the Performance Artist

Bojana Kunst / The Labour of the Performance Artist

In my lecture, I would like to illustrate how artistic labour became visible again due to the idiotic, wasteful, repetitive and passive work at the heart of contemporary capitalism, which continuously needs to produce value from even the most meaningless and useless labouring gestures in order to sustain itself.
