Movement in Dance and Exhibition Context Workshop
"The workshop revolves around questions of liveliness, performativity and movement in a dance and exhibition context... Other topics are: how live works in public and exhibition spaces hold a potential for different regimes of attention; for the reconfiguration of the public sphere in a more communal and collective experience; and the relationship of live presence with the technology and the digital." - antista!c's newspaper.
Manuel Pelmus is known to the British audience by his work "Public Collection Tate Modern 2016. A live exploration of artworks that questions the museum as a permanent collection".
The nature of Emanuel's work is one that makes of him a unique expert of fine arts, combining a vast knowledge of visual arts with profound expertise on dance, performance and choreography.
Hence, this workshop was an intense experience of shuttling between the two realms; visual arts and dance/movement.
On a personal level LAAF was very privileged to attend this workshop and is full of profound gratitude towards antistat!c festival organisers. Iva Sveshtarova, Willy Prager, Stephan Shtereff - Thank you people. Thank you.
Joining the brilliant class of professional performance artists, dancers and choreographers was one off experience - Together with having the time of its life, Laaf also had a very hard time following instructions and fulfilling tasks being completely unprepared on both conceptual and physical level.
Therefore, Laaf feels obliged to formally thank Manuel and the rest of the group for their patience and understanding.
