Artistic-theoretical parcours on response and responsibility in dance and performance.
MON 4 – SAT 9 APRIL in Tanzquartier Wien

Contemporary dance and performance art frequently takes place on the margins of the economies of utility, exploitability and classifiability. As a cultural practice, it not only reproduces existing agency and thought and the their immanent structures and strategies of deciding, of sharing and transmission, but makes visible precisely these arrangements and obligations to the Other. By discussing, exhibiting or shifting these relationships into new contexts, or critically reworking them and making them discursive, artists bring our individual and collective arrangements into play and turn a directive concept of responsibility into a dialogic, a dynamic and shared space of response. In this way they assume the Other, the alien not as something different confronting us, but take advantage of the resonances of this unknown – which has always been within ourselves – for their artistic work.

The artists and theoreticians who have been invited in the framework of SCORES No3: uneasy going encounter this disquietude, which formulates itself in the moment of encounter, in the most varied ways. Their subjects range from questions of interculturality and migration, from our approach to our own as well as the history of others, to discussions of the body of the sort that are, among others, being conducted in medicine and neuroscience, but also in ethical research. If in their artistic as well as discursive work they also raise the question of how designed and real spaces, roles and ideas can be distributed and developed, this does not just concern the specific relationship between the actors on stage and the audience. Far more, they draw up (counter-) models to existing economic and social distribution processes, to the prevailing drafts of society and call on us to jointly work on taking responsibility that is not restricted to the question of signature and authorship.

In various formats – performances, dialogues, research sketches, work-in-progress presentations, lectures, training and a workshop – the inscribing gesture of the choreographic in reference to a body that in our communications society has long been held to be dumb becomes discursively and sensually tangible as a challenge and area of experimentation.

We regard our SCORES project series as an artistic-theoretical discourse and research space that we would like to open up to the widest possible audience. In this, continuous participation in all a day's programme points is particularly important to us.To make this possible cost-effectively, all the performances, performance lectures and sketches shown in this context in the TQW / Studios take place on the "pay as you wish" principle.
