Modes of Collaboration and “Being-With”

[ deutsch ] [ english ]

artistic research-lab with Julia Danzinger: laban movement analysis (Julia Danzinger) + image based choreography (Iris Julian) // 24 February 2015

Using examples of stagings in the field of theatre, this project – a combination of a theoretical PhD and artistic research – poses the question of how non-hierarchical forms of artistic collaboration can be realised. The project’s timeframe covers the last 20 years – a period which has been characterized by neoliberal tendencies. In the dance field this was noticeable among other things through the increased foundation of one-person companies (“Me-Incorporated”)1.
