Reintroducing the idea of plurality, for contemporary culture hailing from modernity, means inventing ways of being together […] the most pressing thing is no longer the emancipation of individuals, but the freeing-up of inter-human communications, the dimensional emancipation of existence. Nicolas Bourriaud
I have been invited to participate in a pilot residency entitled MOVING // DIALOGUE: Modes of Being (Together) curated and conceived by choreographer Sara Wookey. The residency will take place in late August in Athens as a framework for collectively exploring: Moving // mixing and circulating; Improvising // imagination, participation, adaptation; Eating // environments and inter-action; Dialoguing // social interstices, interlocutors and states of encounter; Materialising // making and sharing from doing. Sara's invitation was to a small group of international, interdisciplinary practitioners and researchers, each of whom she has known for more than 10 years and had the opportunity to collaborate with on different projects some adhoc and small-scale and others more planned and public facing; some one-off and others on-going. More about this project soon.
