How can a body begin to move when the relationship of this body with its surroundings constitutes a fundamentally precarious and vulnerable moment? A relationship that is easily thrown off balance and that can reveal our own limitations? In Precarious Moves, Michael Turinsky continues his research into choreographic gestures in the context of politically motivated aesthetical concepts. One key element in this solo will be the question of individual and collective needs and requirements in regard to mobility and mobilisation. With his own experience of physical disability, Turinsky will once again draw on the concept of “Crip Time”, thereby revolting against the submission of bodies to the rule of systemic regimes of hegemonic mobility and mobilisation cultures. Alternating between concepts of the organic and organisation, Precarious Moves will serve as the basis for exploration of this strange bond that connects the body with the sensual world in which it is placed.
