WEAVING POLITICS produced a remarkable amount of relevance, and dynamics of exchange.
By massive investment, and considerable efforts, from all parties involved, not least attending audiences. All this deserves to be taken advantage of, and further challenged; by the launching of a new project.
And where the symposium engaged in the slow weaving of (a) place of scrutiny, then set a dead line and called for a single assembled event, the new project should fold provided fabric, procrastinate closure, and navigate adrift.
CHOREO_DRIFT project 2014 2015 (as of August 15th 2013)
CHOREO_DRIFT departs from the symposium and insists on not leaving. Then targets deviation, and travels elsewhere. Determined to remain in (a) place, and at the same time move, the project embarks a series of repetition and dislocation, both of itself, and context; by the turns and returns of language, and the uncanny of staged encounters, ultimately to sustain continuous writing, and proliferation of response.
Purpose of the project is to repeatedly address one and the same set of concerns, whilst interacting / interfering with diverse locations and communities. As to recurrently confirm and disperse, resist and allow, induce, produce and repeatedly share. Crucial to the project is the dwelling of (a) temporary common, whereby proximity may be perceived, and reciprocally mediated; and whilst mobility of sign is ensured, and resistance of trace endured, (a) choreography may be produced, and reciprocally exposed.
A group of scholars and artists are invited to repeat their contribution to the symposium in a number of different locations and various circumstances, and by exposure to multiplicity of response unavoidably are bound to challenge trajectory of discourse. Peers and other guests based in visited locations are also invited to join with a lecture or other action, thus also contribute to dynamics and immediacy of exchange.
Each event performs a number of lectures, round tables, and general discussions, all merged into a set of interactive choreographies, curated according to location and targeted addressee. The event welcomes scholars, students, artists and general public, may last one or more days, in one or several spaces, for a small or larger audience, workshops and other projects may be arranged, relating publications will be provided. Lastly, each event is framed by club activities what sharing of food, drinks and music belongs to the interweaving process of exchange.
Prior departure, the project provides WEB access to programmed lectures and choreographies, for all parties to pre-scrutinize and process, individually and jointly. Purpose of this set-up is to provide all parties (visiting team included) the space, time and insight necessary to respond to the complexity of proposed discourse, thus due time, to enable all parties to sustain and challenge a true participatory encounter.
