They Returned Every Day At the Same Time To the Same Place

Episode 6 - CHOREOGRAPHY

from They Returned Every Day At the Same Time To the Same Place | Published 3/10/2021

“THEY RETURNED EVERY DAY AT THE SAME TIME TO THE SAME PLACE” IS A PROPOSAL FOR A DANCE THAT HOWEVER CAPTURED BY INTERNET BASED REPRESENTATION SEEKS TO BE RIGOROUS WITH DANCE’ INHERENT ABSTRACTION – ITS ABILITY TO JUST COMMUNICATE – AS WELL AS ITS PROPENSITIES BEYOND THE OCULAR. IT DOES SO BY AN INVITATION TO PARTAKE IN TWO PARALLEL FORMS OF ACCUMULATION THAT FURTHER ACTIVATES TWO MODALITIES OF PERFORMATIVITY. OVER 26 DAYS – FROM 5TH TO 30TH MARCH 2021 – A SERIES OF EQUALLY MANY DANCES WILL UNFOLD NEXT TO THE ACCUMULATION OF AN ABÉCÉDAIRE, REFLECTING ON HOW DANCE COMMUNICATES AND THEREFORE BECOMES A PLACE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF AIMLESS CONTEMPLATION. THIS PROPOSAL FORMS A CONVIVIALITY WITH THE WORK OF VISUAL ARTIST IAN WILSON, AS WELL AS WITH THE WELL-KNOWN ABÉCÉDAIRE, THAT CLAIRE PARNET CONDUCTED WITH GILLES DELEUZE IN THE 80S. ALTHOUGH SHARING ECOLOGIES THERE IS ALSO A TENSION CREATED IN RESPECT OF THE PERFORMATIVITIES ACTIVATED. WHEN WILSON’S WORK AMONG OTHER THINGS CAN BE SEEN AS A CRITIQUE OF INSTITUTIONS, THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES PRESENCE, THE PROMINENCE OF THE OCULAR AND FORMS OF SPECTATORSHIP. SIMILARLY, WHEN PARNET’S ABÉCÉDAIRE FORMS AN INTIMACY WITH DELEUZE AS A PERSON THROUGH HIS PHILOSOPHICAL LANDSCAPE, THIS PROPOSAL CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF REFLECTIONS WHERE DANCE OPERATES AS A DEPARTURE POINT.
