Rehearsing Collectivity – Choreography Beyond Dance

David LevineWhat is a collective body and how does it move? What kind of temporary community is embodied by the audience? How can the political and social dimension, implicit in the concept of collectivity, be translated and practiced in the artistic field? These questions shaped the core of the project “Rehearsing Collectivity – Choreography Beyond Dance” that took place with exhibition, performances and lectures between 27 April – 6 May at Tanzfabrik/ Uferstudios Berlin. With it the curators Elena Basteri, Emanuele Guidi, Elisa Ricci in dialogue with the artist Aldo Giannotti reflected on the paradigmatic shift in the notion of collectivity and participation in society and the arts. In the following interview Elena Basteri and Emanuele Guidi speak about the potentials of carrying over the idea of choreography into the social realm, the testing of both of them with the means of visual, sound and performance arts and the curatorial approach in the project.

Generally, it can be seen as a reflection on the performance as a group situation that you push to a liminal phase letting it vibrate on its limits by constantly subverting its basic components such as time and space frame, speech, movement and spectatorship. How have you come to this form? What was the initial impetus that made you work in this direction?
