CHOREO_DRIFT departs from the WEAVING POLITICS symposium and opens this Friday, August 15th
Sophiensaele in Berlin as the opening event of Tanz Im August 2014.
In Berlin, CHOREO_DRIFT features lectures and choreographies from ccap, Cristina Caprioli, Gabriele Brandstetter, Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback, and Boyan Manchev. CHOREO_DRIFT challenges the traditional modes of mediation of both lectures and choreography, and perform an orchestration of bodily gestures and virtual imagery as articulation of speech and movement.

Each event presents a cluster of lectures spoken by their authors as well as mediated by a series of choreographic responses. Attending audiences are invited to watch, listen, respond and themselves retrace proposed lectures and choreographies. Thus are encouraged to engage in a multiple sensory mode, both individually and collectively. Crucial to each event is the dwelling into a multiple sensory field of exchange, whereby a different choreography, itself subject/object of scrutiny, is collectively perceived, articulated and reciprocally exchanged.


This Berlin event marks the beginning of a ccap journey that maps Europe and the US east coast 2014 and 2015.

International interdisciplinary symposium on choreography, violence and human rights
14 – 16 December 2012, Dansens Hus, Stockholm.

WEAVING POLITICS addresses choreography as a weaving labor of politics. And by a cobweb of specific languages and disenchanted knowledge engages in a scrutiny of the notions and practices of human rights, and violence.

The symposium invites choreography, philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, law, political science and the general public to a three-days storm of lectures, discussions, and choreographic events in critical interaction.

Special guests:

Julia Kristeva,  Peggy PhelanWilliam Forsythe and Diamanda Galás

Pivotal event of the symposium is the choreographic event Human Writes by William Forsythe and Kendall Thomas, performed by the Forsythe Company with guests from the Cullberg Ballet, ccap and the community of dancers in Stockholm. Additional events will be presented by Cristina Caprioli/ccap, in collaboration with co-researchers.
