Dance&Resistance, Endangered Human Movements Vol.2

Part of the festival “The Mole Keeps on Digging. Animals / Politics / Performance

"Dance & Resistance” explores dances and social practices that were described as "ritual" by the anthropologists of the last century. The dances – re-embodied in the performance – were banned, persecuted or even distorted beyond recognition in order to serve the goals of colonization. The piece explores the potential resistance of the body in the context of neoliberal market economy and the increased privatization of natural resources. The visual artist and filmmaker Daniel Zimmermann has devised a space in constant transformation, through an interlaced video, light and sound collage— An intimate performance experience.
