Movement Mazes Whispering Fictions (in the Garden) research lab will explore ways to transpose, give and inhabit movement experiences, puzzles, and spells, amongst other moving enigmas mixing up fictional formalisms, un-essentialist somatics and queered minimal endeavours.


How can we daydream together through movement? From which fictions do we move and which fictions do we produce in dance.  We will observe how layers, narratives and possibilities build up in the body. What if one’s body stays in gifted movement? If we inhabit foreign movement, is it an attempt to shapeshift into another body. How can we focus on movement as a codified and layered abstraction rather than a shape, in order to make it transferable to and transformable by different bodies.

Through a continuum of movement travelling through bodies, this lab will explore the sustaining of a common body where we relate to each other at a distance but with intimacy – a collective enactment of togetherness which is as abstract as it is political.

This workshop is open to all participants who have a performative practice; no specific prior training experience is required.
