ABOUT THE PROJECT/ WORKSHOP
Our society is dominated by working life and is completely geared towards it. Performance and success are paramount. The view is always forward. Growth is the magic word and is considered the most important pillar of the economy. Production must always work, idling and standstill count as a loss.
The performance workshop focuses on examining the qualities of activity and passivity.
We play with the terms and explore their limits. When does activity become actionism? Does overly eager actionism really help me? What about the opposite? What are the different qualities of pausing and do they mean standing still?
The performance project transposition reverse is a mixture of movement research and theatrical moments. We generate movement material through tasks, which we contrast with different intentions. We play with the change in effect through contrasting intentions. We work with the opposition of activity and passivity in the movement sequence and play with the narrow degree of positive and negative effects, in order to finally place them in a performative context with the group. This will then be shown in a public showing in the Marameo at the end of the workshop.
