28/01/17 – Ballein: Throwing Dance
This exercise has been developed since 2013 in different contexts and together with participants from laboratory at LOTE in Sao Paolo, workshop at Teatro Pradillo Madrid, workshop at Smash Berlin and Julia Plawgo and Negroma at Pact Zollverein residency .
The statement behind this exercise is that dance must be forced to happen instead of being the result of a benevolent desire to move. On this exercise you are not going to dance to the music that you like, you are not going to dance your favorite choreographies. On this exercise the dance is not a result of a desire to dance a choreography. You will not dance what you want or like to dance but rather the dance is forced to happen. Without being exposed to danger this dance will never take place.
