Peter Pleyer


post-modern-dance evolution

This is a workshop to find some stepping stones of our contemporary movement practice. We asked ourselves: how did we get here? And then a cascade of questions followed… Who are my ancestors and my mentors? To which strand of post-modern movement practice do I feel affiliated? We carry ghosts, and we reiterate, even mould, other dance histories. Some of the work is about retracing the roots linearly, while some of the tracking procedures will be non-linear and intuitive, aiming to punctuate personal obsessions or recurrent themes. This simultaneous tracing and weaving offers us a place of belonging and gives our current concerns a collective purpose. We are already dancing our lineage, often unconsciously, and want to be able to detect the cues and pinpoint the traces. We are the present and move in it, and bridge the past and future, perpetually evolving and regressing. On specific examples we will recollect and put in perspective our post-modern dance history.
