Studio B
In English


“The workshop title comes from a disco song by Cerrone from 1977 with lyrics by Lene Lovich, and the mix of the supernaturality and disco culture appeals to me – the dance of beyond.”

This workshop is about instability and uncertainty as states of potential; about exploring ungrounding and destabilization as sites of invention, where the queer and unfixable, mutable and unmaterialized, unsettled and precarious live and where our senses are asked to reach beyond what is immediately available into spaces where change happens.

We will work with different maps of bodies that were born in the studio during Steve Paxton’s development of “Material for the Spine”, and have since been explored, extrapolated, undone, and re-examined through years of practice in relation to other influences from the work of Lisa Nelson’s “Tuning Scores” amongst other things.
These maps will be there as points of departure; things to play with, test and disrupt as we explore moving through a series of constantly of shifting stabilities and instabilities.

The workshop will offer practical exercises and improvisational scores to support everyone to take a series of physical rides in conversation with each other.
