It all started as an ode to Dance five years ago, with a common experiment on how to learn from dance, rather than on learning how to dance or how to be oneself. The crazy, odd, queer and idiosyncratic dance styles evolved around working with (respecting) physical presence, and focused on kinesthetic writing in the matter of space and time, in an (under) common force-field, in a dynamic territory, and in a place where a constant change of dynamics is possible.
This time, the occasion is the 60th anniversary of the Studio Contemporary Dance Company. It is an intergenerational experiment with the dancers aged 21 to 69. Working with their bodies, with various ways of physical presence, and a passion for dance they inevitably bring about new implications: the writings of dances as a force that challenges the vast field of normalization.
