REHEARSING THE FUTURE WHILE DANCING

PERFORMANCE AND EDUCATION WORKSHOP WITH PAZ ROJO
Taller de performance

ENROLMENT FREE

Now that any future seems unthinkable, it is exciting to think about a possible future that will allow us to dance again. It is exciting to remember that we are alive, situating the body and experience at the very centre of life and artistic learning. Roland Barthes said that “we work with the act of apparition, the world that manifests itself through us and since we don't understand, we dance”. And so it is a question of dancing to understand the world and its potential. Dancing so that the interruption brought about by the current health crisis does not mean the end but a means through which we can dance once again. The workshop proposes a space in which we can rehearse the future(s) while dancing through different bodily practices, opening up a field of experimentation around the body (its uses, materialities and implications) and associating the experience with educational and learning spaces both inside and outside the classroom.

Paz Rojo is a choreographer, dancer and researcher with a PhD in performative practices specializing in choreography from the Stockholm University of the Arts (Stockholm, Sweden) with an artistic research dissertation called The decline of choreography and its movement: a body's (path)way. In 2019 she published the book To Dance in the Age of No-Future (Circadian), Berlin. More information here.

Every summer we organize a performance workshop for teachers, educators and artists interested in education. It involves a week-long work with the body in which we create bonds of collaboration and think about educational processes and performativity within education. In previous years these workshops have been led by Los Torreznos, Tania Bruguera, Pere Faura, Itziar Okariz, Norberto Llopis, Nilo Gallego, Dora García, Aimar Pérez Galí, Luz Broto, Aitana Cordero and Jiří Kovanda.
