If a choreographic dispositif offers a framework for making sense of a performance's language, a disnegatif could perhaps embrace the choreographic engines that make things fall apart. Rooted in theories of black performance and ambiguity, we will spend this time together thinking and discussing bodies as the zero degree of where racial marks appear and how systems of meaning-making reinforce these. The question is, what falls apart when we refuse choreography as a tool for sense-making? What, then, can sensitise us to each other, to our particular sources and disperse us across a terrain of possible new relational positions? When sense unravels, other priorities and faculties emerge, entangled, like all bodies are, among objects, flesh, utterance and space. Inherent in our research is the question of what right do we have to make sense of each other, and what tools do we think we have for doing so. As daily physical and discursive engagement, we will propose invented and known forms of practising being together and being apart, towards, what exactly, it is hard to say. It starts with announcing the negative of what we know to be true, each day.
