Choreography cuts the Line Dance

MA CUP 03, 04, 06-09

A thread of thought. A surface of the movement. A floorplan of choreography. A drawing of duration. A line of dance. Continue ----------- If we think about the choreography, we usually think about a certain regularity, different arrangements and the organization of humans and non-humans. It is often a considerably imaginative system that could be repeatable, if not repeatable then remembered, if not remembered then felt, if not felt then proposed, if not proposed then perceived, continue ----------- This considerably imaginative system is hugged by the texture of duration, choices and contingent events, but what if we would just cut it all? We could get a collage of bits of, states in between, instabilities and the sense of wrongness, a very nice cut in the flow of regularity I think. Continue ----------- cut.

The seminar is combined with the seminar "Lines and Choreography" by Prof. Dr. Bojana Kunst, and it takes place every Monday at MA CODE studio in HfmdK in Frankfurt, from 17.00 – 21.00. Participation in both seminars is obligatory.
