Excerpts by Sara Ahmed and Brian Massumi + we will be writing auto-fictional short stories that we will be reading to each other.
Through a meditative and visualization practice, we will be making each our imaginary objects related to affective states that we will place in the installation of ‘echoes’. Afterwards we will transmit the presence of the objects to each other energetically and through dancing.
*P0$$€ dance and reading is gatherings for people wanting to spend time dancing and reading together. It is an open-ended study circle for practitioners within contemporary dance and other curious ones. We meet up weekly in different constellations to practice reading and dancing together and investigate what this could mean. Each session is hosted by one or several practitioners that propose the materials: text to read, a way to read the text and dances. The text can be written be artistic, essayistic, philosophical, articles, lyrics, poetry, manifestos, scores. The methods can vary from reading in a circle one by one, to braiding hair, to intimate readings, to speaking through robotic voices. The dances can vary in style: contemporary, modern, reggaeton, body work, formalism, expressive dance, dance-rituals, scores, meditations, writing, questioning, healing, dreaming, for example.
P0$$€ is engaged with critical practices and with generating discourse through doing. P0$$€ is an institutional parasite, an autonomous entity, based on the idea that nothing is connected to everything, everything is connected to something (Haraway). The host of P0$$€ is changing from time to time, just like its participants. P0$$€ is whoever is there. P0$$€ was initiated by Tamara Alegre, Chloe Chignell, Louise Pousette and Klara Utke Acs, and is now organized in Stockholm by Louise and Klara with Austeja Vilkaityte and Alice MacKenzie. P0$$€ also have sister groups in Copenhagen, Melbourne and Montréal.
Performance Situation Room is a format part of Life Long Burning – Towards a sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe project (2018-2022) supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union
