Symposium international : Dance, Politics & Co-Immunity


The international symposium “Dance, Politics & Co-Immunity“ is dedicated to the question of how dance, both in its historical and in its contemporary manifestations, is intricately linked to conceptualisations of the political. Whereas in this context the term “policy” means the reproduction of hegemonic power relations within already existing institutional structures, politics refers to those practices which question the space of policy as such by inscribing that into its surface which has had no place before. Thinking politics as the absent political within policy is therefore by definition linked to the idea of choreography in the truest sense of the word: The art of choreography consists in distributing bodies and their relations in space. It is a distribution of parts that within the field of the visible and the sayable allocates positions to specific bodies. Yet in the confrontation between bodies and their relations, a deframing and dislocating of positions may take place. This ongoing distribution and reconfiguration of the sensible (Jacques Rancière) which structures the body and its parts and links it to the existing symbolic order of any given society can be considered a site of resistance allowing for interventions into hegemonic discourses, traditional distributions and fixed framings. In the public space of theatre, whose characteristic feature is the separation of stage and auditorium, dance may not only distribute its bodies, but also split and to share that which is separated and yet united: The community of bodies as well as their words and the objects they produce.
