Tanz und Migration
Multilingual Movement Texts
The theme of this workshop is a theoretical and a practical engagement with (the political and cultural dimensions of) migration and their aesthetic multiplicity: what does, therefore, cultural and aesthetic multiplicity mean in (contemporary) dance? What is the role of migratory phenomena? Migrations to Europe and away from Europe, and transnational circulations contingent upon idiosyncratic (artist)biographies and their evidences in dance .
In the workshop we actively interrogate the intersections between research questions and approaches and choreographic/dancerly practice in dialogues and performative studies. The aim is gaining a deeper understanding for possible synergies between theory and practice, as well as between current (western) movement forms and transculturality.
Together we want to develop tools and methods which intensify the (thus far peripheral) dialog between contemporary dance and a multiplicity of cultural forms.
The workshop takes place in the context of the communication project Dance and Migration/Tanz und Migration (Austrian Science Fund (FWF) WKP 32) and consists of a short theoretical introduction (including analysis of movement and works), improvisatory and choreographic assignments, as well as collaborative work with the jointly created materials. Participants will reflect and localize their own dance/movement backgrounds and enter into mutual exchanges. This will be structured through choreographic and improvisatory exercises, which deliberately are based on non-western dance-traditions.
