Elena Bajo’s Public Performance– Anarchoreographies- within the context of A performance Affair, an international event of performance art.
Having a short text as a point of departure, a series of experiments and studies will be proposed that attempt to explore the intersection of ecologies of capital and body movement, chance and muscle memory undertaking anarchism as artistic strategy, by implementing elements of disentanglement and affects, as a point of dissidence and disruption on contemporary political choreographies. Anarchoreographies – non-hierarchical trajectories used as a tool to articulate a sense of subjectivity and collectivity and the creation of a space in constant flux.
