Artistic-theoretical parcours on the bodies of religion

MON. 14 JAN. – SAT. 19 JAN.
in Tanzquartier Wien / Hall G und Studios

The body – physicality – is accorded great significance in almost all religions. In all individuality and difference, the body always reveals itself here as a link: as one that opens up spaces for participation and sharing, as the connecting link between religion, society and politics, between the individual and the community.

In the exercise of belief, the religious takes place in physicality – and vice versa: in the body postures of the appeal and the prayer, in the gestures of worship or in meditative states, during religious rituals in public space, processions or dancers, or when extreme experiences of suffering or rapture are expressed through the body. In a physical and discursive act of addressing, SCORES N°6: on addressing is dedicated to the bodies of religion – multifaceted, surprising, and in the process of change – in the attempt to open up a space in which the invited performances, lectures, films, installations and artistic work formats in their singularity open up towards the dialogic.
