After one year of collaboration, the team of Negotiations meet one last time to reflect and talk about...
The three Theory curators bring different perspectives to the table: in addition to a choreographic-analytical approach, a pop-culture outlook critical of society and a queer/feminist perspective are increasingly taken into account as well. Some of the theory programme is thematically linked with TQW’s performance programme, but besides that it also investigates essential issues in the fields of choreography and performance, or, more generally, major concerns of our time. In addition, Tanzquartier Wien promotes a new way of engaging with the performances. Experts from various disciplines will write a text to accompany every work shown at TQW, which will provide both artists and visitors with additional material for analysis. The texts will be collected and published atour Newsblog and, moreover, as a print magazine once a year.
The lab programme regularly held at the TQW Studios is dedicated to exploration and exchange between local as well as international artists and experts.
Unhampered by the customary pressure to produce and present, the participants can explore general topical, specific or utterly unusual aspects of contemporary choreography and performance. Some of the subjects addressed relate to the contemporaneous performance programme at Tanzquartier Wien to enable a closer examination.
However, the labs also provide those interested with a platform to inquire into urgent issues of our time, irrespective of TQW’s programme. Experts or artists curate and run the labs.
4 February 2019 will mark the end of the year of the dog in the Chinese lunar calendar as well as the end of Daniel Aschwanden’s one-year artistic investigation into hybrid forms of man and dog. The research conducted in Aschwanden’s lab is concerned with questions of embodiment and artistic representation in the biomolecular field, with scientific and mythical narratives represented by the hybrid body and with configurations of otherness in politics, sciences and the arts. Animals as configurations of otherness will be examined and related to human and post-human philosophy. Each day, a new expert will be invited to join the team and to contribute to the ongoing investigation. Visitors are also welcome to join the lab to witness the process for three hours each day (limited availability).
