First edition of the anthology consisting of texts written by artists active within the field of dance and choreography in the Nordic countries.
In Nordic languages and English.
Illuminates the relationship between philosophy and experimental choreographic practice today in the works of leading European choreographers.
Lepecki surveys a decade of experimental choreography to uncover the dual meaning of ‘performance’ in the twenty-first century: not just an aesthetic category, but a mode of political power. He demonstrates the enduring ability of performance to critique and subvert this power, examining this relationship through five ‘singularities’ in contemporary dance: thingness, animality, persistence, darkness, and solidity.
The 2015 festival entitled 'Back to the Future', took a hard look both back and forward and examined the idea of 'inheritance'. The DVD is in an invitation to look another look back – at the panoply of contemporary art work.
25/9 – 18/10 2015
