Thinking Choreography

BA-ATW-11; MA-ATW-04; MA-CUP-01

In this seminar we will discuss various aspects of choreographic practice in contemporary dance and in contemporary culture in general. We will read texts on movement and choreography, which explore by example the connections between choreography and subjectivity, embodiment, power, mobilization, organisation, the potentiality of choreography, the links between choreographic and political practices and the limits of choreography. In the centre of our interest will be an expanded notion of choreography and its relation to other social and political practices in contemporary culture.
