The Future Clinic for Critical Care: Building Inclusive Commons Through Crip

The Future Clinic for Critical Care is a socio-cultural animated practice exploring the messy politics of care. We, a group of disabled and nondisabled artists and activists, use fiction, feminist strategies of world making, subvertising, and activist trickster tactics to dream otherwise about more inclusive and less violent futures. Part 2 of this FCCC Workshop will focus on an easy to understand mix of Crip Theory, Queer Theory, intersectional approaches to theory and Neo Liberal Critique. We do this to find commonalities between these life saving strategies in order to promote our inclusive revolution. Here, Battlefield Nurses Nina, Tanja and Jeremy present a poly clinic of diverse activities from short lecture presentations and discussions grounded in lived experience to intimate work in small groups asking diverse participants what critical care means to them. Eventually these Nurses will be guiding future political rituals, impossible parliamentary procedures and forms of protest with simple props and graphics. Nothing says inclusive future togetherness like FCCC’s patented and user approved "Circle Dance of Systemic Support", by all means try "Solidarity Cream" and of course never miss the ever-popular "Spit Ritual". Join us for a queer and crip extravaganza at ImPulsTanz while we unpack the violence of virtuosity in Dance and Performance.

PLEASE NOTE: this workshop is offered on a pay-as-you-wish-principle – "you pay what you can or consider to be fair". The payment is made exclusively in person at the ImPulsTanz Workshop Office at MuseumsQuartier or at the Arsenal (our cancellation policy also applies to this workshop).

ARTISTBIO: Tanja Erhart

Tanja Erhart grew up in Tirol and studied Cultural- and Socialanthropology in Vienna. As a contemporary dancer she trained with Adam Benjamin, Sonja Brown, Vera Rebl, Michael Turinsky, ImPulsTanz, AXIS Dance Company and Candoco Dance Company, which she joined from 2014 to 2017. Currently she shares her experiences and dance practice in Advisory Panels, Workshops and Conferences and performs in Farah Saleh’s "Brexit means Brexit" – touring Scotland in May 2019 – as well as in Claire Cunningham’s first ensemble piece about the impersonation of Elvis Presley – premiering in July 2019. She is also co-curating and co-organising the IntegrART symposium, a networking project by Migros Culture Percentage that supports disabled artists.

ARTISTBIO: Nina Mühlemann

Nina Mühlemann grew up in Zurich and studied English literature in Basel and London. At the end of 2017 she completed her doctoral thesis in the fields of performance and disability studies at King’s College London, where she also worked as a teaching assistant. Since summer 2018 until spring 2020 she is co-directing the Future Clinic for Critical Care together with the artist Jeremy Wade, a socio-culturally animated performance project about the politics of care and disability. She is also co-curating and co-organising the IntegrART symposium, a networking project by Migros Culture Percentage that supports disabled artists. As an activist, she is part of several disability organisations.

ARTISTBIO: Jeremy Wade

Disruption, Excess, Hyper Vulnerability, Critical Care – Jeremy Wade is an extreme performer and performance maker with an extensive practice of curating and teaching to boot. After graduating from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam in 2000 and receiving a Bessie Award for his first evening length performance "Glory" at Dance Theater Workshop in New York City in 2006, he moved to Berlin and since then works in close collaboration with the Hebbel Theater as well as Gessnerallee, Zurich. Recently, Wade has created "Fountain", "Together Forever", "Death Asshole Rave Video", "Drawn Onward", and "Between Sirens", exploring the death of man, zombie subjectivity, strange modes of being and feminist strategies of world making to undermine the social codes that define and oppress our bodies. Jeremy premiered a new solo titled "The Clearing", a flamboyant affective engine of solidarity with musician Marc Lohr at HAU2 in the beginning of May 2019. Later in June he will re-stage "Glory", a brutal naked duet made in 2006 with Swedish Choreographer and performer Sindri Runudde and Musician Brendan Dougherty at Sophiensaele, Berlin.
