Choreography of Care – online workshops by Renata Piotrowska-Auffret and Aleksandra BoZek-MuszyNska (PL).
Together, we will take a close look at care in the context of our individual work with our own bodies and creation of horizontal interhuman relations.
Where: on-line, via Zoom platform
When: 4-7 October 2021, Monday-Thursday, 20:00, GMT+4
Deadline for applications: 30 September 2021
During our practical and theoretical workshops, we will conduct choreographic and motion/movement activities as well as discuss a selection of texts. From the bodily perspective, we will attempt to create a movement and choreography practice founded on the sense of community, listening to one another, and experiencing one’s body as well as on the strength derived from the bodily organicism and biology. From the intellectual perspective, we will attempt to create a vision of a new system, of new strategies of building an image of a woman’s body and its treatment.
During the workshops, the group will read and discuss feminist and eco-feminist texts by among others Mona Chollet, Sarah Ahmed, Stacy Alaimo, and Emilie Hache. Tasks conducted in the course of the sessions will be dependent upon the relation between theory and practice. Choreography is understood broadly: as strategies and ways of relating thoughts and bodies in motion in a given educational, artistic, or social context.
Together, we will take a close look at care in the context of our individual work with our own bodies and creation of horizontal interhuman relations. We will discuss, visualize, and envision what the world and politics, if based on relations founded on care, could look like. We will make a concerted effort to establish a community of women and specify our aims in the social context: how to increase the visibility of women artists, women mothers, and other people with tutelary responsibility. With the assistance of choreographic tools, we will search for relations grounded in respect and care for oneself and the entire group.
Fusing theory and practice, the workshop meeting will enable us all to notice the social dimension of choreography. This experience can be of significance to all the participants “right here, right now”, but it can also become the driving force behind further individual and collective activities conducted in a wider social and political context.
We invite everyone identifying as women, regardless of their age.
Prior dance and movement experience is not necessary.
