The workshop is developed by Zoë Poluch and Stina Nyberg and held at Dansalliansen in Stockholm 2014, the Non-Conference in Estonia 2015 and at Reykjavik Dance Festival in August 2015.
Dancing is… Stina and Zoë propose one hour of dancing. It is a time where the actual doing, the dancing, theorizes and defines itself. We say no to choreography, to performing and to training.
Talking is…Stina and Zoë propose one hour of talking. It is a time where the actual doing, the talking, theorizes and defines itself. We say yes to the training of talking, the performance of the panel talk and the choreography of the conversation.
Hoping is….Stina and Zoë propose one hour of hoping. It is a time where we turn to hoping as a practice of utopian imagination. We say no to fear, self-preservation and anxiety. “…the project of hope must struggle against both the resentment of what has come to be and the fear of what might replace it, not because the future is settled – on the contrary, it could be a catastrophe – but because a different and better world remains a possibility.” (Kathi Weeks “The Problem with Work”)
