DANCE ALL YEAR LONG | Liselotte Singer & Marc Philipp Gabriel
DANCE ALL YEAR LONG. 12 venues, 12 projects in Kokkola 2020
DANCE ALL YEAR LONG is a 12-month residency program that travels to different cities and invites local and international dance artists for two week long residencies. At the end of the residencies the artists share their projects to the local community, free of charge.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
Lilo & Marc keep on living an everyday passive activism: a being together that regards mutual responsibility and care as radically indispensable. We are more than ever convinced that our way of artistic collaboration is politically and socially relevant in the context of normative society.
The research WHERE WE ARE NOW in Kokkola claims a space for radical empathy. At the core of the movement material lies the improvisation practice “Doing the same thing for three hours”. Here we undergo an infinitive variety of “doing the same thing”, a seemingly banal practice that brings up deep personal and social questions: are we moving in exactly the same way (is that even possible?), are we feeling the same thing, gazing in the same direction, are we part of the same situation, presence or future?
