Tanja Erhart & Jeremy Wade
Future Clinic for Critical Care: Dance The Accessible Ritual Tools
In FCCC Part 1 we will focus on an array of inclusive/accessible dance practices initiated by disabled dance pioneers and queers who give a shit about the violence of norms in the dance world. Here, Tanja Erhart and Jeremy Wade will begin with generating grounded consent and awareness of the different bodyminds that are present in the space. Negotiating everyone’s needs, disabled and nondisabled and those in between, requires an environment of care and patience. Participants are then invited to create their own warm-up ritual. Some of us might be preparing or cleaning crutches, wheelchairs or any kind of assistive tools while others are invited to find a tool or augmentation of their body to prepare, either way, the warm-up ritual is on your own terms and conditions. Giving time and space to our tools, boundaries and permissions can help us to come together better in the many group dances we will eventually propose. Jeremy and Tanja will be co-leading this session, taking turns to propose a diverse range of exercises and ways of negotiating together. We will use juicy fantastic visualisations and music that will mmmmmove us. We will work to build new myths that support inclusive accessible futures.
