Site(s) Specific Performance Writing Installation in Virtual and Physical Space
What is the language that makes questions most accessible to inhabitants, workers and passers by? How might a question placed in an abandoned due to the financial crisis high-street store and the printed and online version of the hip free press, may raise questions of belonging and claiming of a collectively desirable inhabiting of a place?
How do you make works “move in space and time”? Which region, organ, emotional event, sexual orientation or place in the room do words originate from? How may digital processes of various levels of fidelity, challenge the original event as subject to the physiological functions of perception of living and non-living entities? How is that offered as an all-audiences accessible experience?
Thecallwas an inspiration. The first meeting was even more intriguing and enjoyable. A research project curated by choreographer, Iris Karayan and dramaturg, performing arts researcher, Elena Novakovits, with workshop-exchanges facilitated by dramaturg, performing arts researcher, Rodia Vomvolou, theoretician, dramaturg, performing arts researcher, Konstantina Georgelou and the curators themselves, supported by the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Greece. Since March, working with ten more professionals of the broader dance fields, invited following a call for proposals, collaboratively exploring our own practices, unfolding the core question around the pillars of choreography, dramaturgy, writing on, of and for dance and constructive feedback. A breath of much appreciated fresh air, really. Sooo looking forward to our next gatherings and will definitely share the new body/word – Performance Writing proposals in time due.
