Invitation from Dance Congress 2013 to
Think Tank Vienna 2011
A preparatory event of the Dance Congress 2013
to choreographers, dancers, dance teachers, scholars and critics and an audience interested in dance

SUN 20. NOV
11.00 – 17.00
in TQW / Studios

What “moves” the Austrian scene, how does it “produce” (itself), and which demands does it have? Following the compact programme focus FEEDBACK of Tanzquartier Wien, we cordially invite you to Think Tank Vienna 2011.
At Think Tank Vienna 2011, the ‘open space method’ developed for large groups will allow all participants to propose topics and contribute positions and visions that have emerged in their contexts of work. Supported by a moderator, this will lead to a theme-oriented agenda in “real-time”, without invited lecturers or predetermined contents. The concerns of the participants will be discussed in various open work groups and can possibly trigger initiatives that will then go into greater detail.

Registration:
Tanzquartier Wien, Lejla Mehanovic
lmehanovic [at] tqw [dot] at
+43 (0)1 581 35 91 51
Being present throughout Think Tank Vienna 2011 is important for the quality of the work and for engaging in more detailed discussions. For this reason, please plan to take time for the entire day. Beverages and snacks will be provided. Participation is free of charge.

Artistic-theoretical parcours on the body’s capacity for action.
WED 7 DEC. – SUN 11 DEC. 2011 in Tanzquartier Wien

Maybe the revolution has no head, but it certainly has a lot of bodies, writes Alexandra Lucas Coelho in connection with the events in Cairo in spring 2011. Echoing the current situation in the Arab world, but also in connection with other socio-political and religious movements of resistance, of negotiation and revolt, SCORES N°4: under protest deals with the body’s capacity for action. What moves us to act, to intervene, to do? And what role is accorded to movement and the physical as well as the medialised body in these processes?

This not only addresses the relationship between reaction and action, between intentionality and affect, but choreography becomes clear in many respects as the thinking and practice of intervention and participation – as a means to penetrate society and life. Here the body is not only the representative of identity, cultural, social and political inscriptions and assignations, of inclusion and exclusion, of experiences and life times that meet one another. If we choose a standpoint in the act of choreographing – individually or together – and mark this in its positioning in relation to the Other, if we burst territories and affirm and seek to understand the conditions and premises of our own positioning, to make them visible and tangible, it is not only our bodies that begin to move. Rather, with the relationship of fundament and form in the process of embodiment, established concepts, stereotypes and symbolisms of foreignness, ethnicity, religion and nation begin to shake.

In the most varied discursive and performative formats, the invited artists and theoreticians concern themselves with the physical dimension of action and the movements of opposition which the body produces and provokes in interaction. More than just a reaction to or expression of something else, the body as an actor and a trigger formulates a resistance. A momentum, a kind of barbed hook, with which choreography extends the performative into the everyday, in order to test the everyday performatively; a momentum that introduces moments of pause, of reorientation and redefinition into what is defined as continuing: (Free) spaces for what we have (not yet) undertaken; (free) spaces that make precisely the supposed headlessness of the protesting and resisting body into the starting point of its action.

An excerpt from the current dance and performance scene in Austria in the view of Tanzquartier Wien

WITH: CHRISTINE GAIGG / BERNHARD LANG / WINFRIED RITSCH / PHILIPP HARNONCOURT; DOMINIK GRÜNBÜHEL & LUKE BAIO, AN KALER; KARL KARNER & LINDA SAMARAWEEROVÁ; LIQUID LOFT; ANNA MENDELSSOHN; KRÕÕT JUURAK, PHYSICAL BEHAVIOUR/CHARLOTTA RUTH; SUPERAMAS und THE LOOSE COLLECTIVE

FEEDBACK. As a situation commentary and constructive criticism, location definition and perspective opening, address and corrective, self-perception and perception by the other, current relevance and optionality, noticing and simultaneous retrospective and outlook. As a focus, source of infection, centre. Feedback is a gift: a gift from the Austrian dance and performance scene and to it. In a compact programme focus, for three days a selection of work can be seen by artists who are working in various forms of cooperation with the Tanzquartier Wien: a compact and exciting insight into the current dance and performance scene in Austria, which makes the concept of the choreographic impressively experienceable in all the diversity of its media.

The SYMPOSIUM You' ve got my interest. Symposium on the economics of producing, between extravagance and calculation will take place in the framework of FEEDBACK.
