human – non human working group
This workshop focuses on human and non human materials.
We will start with discovering things and their materiality and draw inspiration from their "behaviour". Jane Bennett (author of "Vibrant Matter") calls the listening and paying attention to the things in terms of their characteristics (odour, texture, speed ...) the "call of things". A piece of wood, dust, a plastic bottle, a piece of paper, a T-shirt, food, worms, water, are all things and non human materials that can be found all around us (even around the Arsenal) and with which we can build human - non human working groups. Dealing with the textures, intensities and qualities of things lead us to new performance designs by trying to invent non-hierarchical thing-human-choreography.
The participants are invited to explore and develop their own human - non human working groups. Furthermore, we will discuss within the group possibilities of human - non human working groups and deal with the discourse of the New Materialism.
Lisa Hinterreithner will give lectures about New Materialism.
