We Are Dancers – a Concert

 

FOOT: irregularities, adapting, working with, dealing with, the perception of the foot, zooming in on the foot, anatomy of the foot, tiredness of the foot, foot in pain, steps, walking, skipping, running, jumping, turning, pointing, tripping, dragging, revisit. A means of meeting. The reciprocity of foot and ground (see GROUND).

What vocabulary belongs to the dancer and how can she as a figure make us think, move, act..? During a two year long, disseminated process, Fanclub has collected a wide range of materials related to the figure of the dancer – applying these in artistic and non-artistic situations with the desire to explore other grounds and potentialities.

Together with guesting artists DD Dorvillier and Paula Caspão, as well as POWDER and August Rosenbaum, Fanclub invite you to Koncertkirken in Copenhagen, to two evenings of (inter)play, movement, words and sounds. Welcome!

Koncertkirken in Copenhagen, 23-24 October at 6-9pm

WOWOWOW residency

We’ve just returned after an amazing week together with Quim Bigas at L’animal a L’esquena in Spain. A second initial working period of WOWOWOW – a collaboration with and around collectivity. The following are some WOrds and WOrlds from the WOrk … 


Collective as a place where outcome is based on negotiation, conflict, listening and misunderstandings. Sense of value as a mode where movement comes from.

A mode of thinking through action – as an ongoing feeding between the modes (action/thinking >< action-thinking >< thinking-action) – allowing us to include an ongoing documentation/tracing of the research, while we work. What format(s) could be appropriate? 

Conversation as a mode of thinking out loud, sharing your statements in the now, as a mode of creating source for movement… Conversation as a going around together, circling and wondering on certain topics, being in the not knowing and on the impossibility of agreements, being in a constant becoming, a constant reflection….Constant construction. The sharing of unknowing.

What if collective is a set of images that appear and disappear, of statements that are ephemeral, of a radical mode of being in a structure through the lenses of being present and in relation…?  

The body of WOWOWOW has multiple eyes, ears and mouths. We can be shape shifters.


Big thanks to the L’animal crew for having us – such a special place!

Now – VACATION MODE!
Take care out there

In the meantime here is an article on Isabel’s work by kunsten.nu (in danish)

Wowoworkshop

Fragments from a workshop we did with Quim Bigas earlier this summer – talking, writing, moving, doing – creating a possible startingpoint for a future collaboration on collectivity and failure. Super interesting, super fun. Thanks Quim!

Yes, Fanclub loves food. Fanclub trigger connections of manyness. Fanclub is touching time by insisting on curiosity. Fanclub is an encounter of dancers, through time and it’s traces. Fanclub is doing, moving, texting, questioning, working, caring… Fanclub is questioning dance and words. Fanclub supports pleasure and friendship. IMG_6018Fanclub surrender to allowance of doubts and misspellings. Fanclub is a dynamic body of DIY and guests. Fanclub is a surprising woman. Fanclub’s emotions roadtrips around reformulations. Fanclub is confused about endless presens. Fanclub is a constellation of persons and co. Fanclub infiltrates now (with contributions). Fanclub is listening to whales. Fanclub confuses responsibility with fun. Fanclub confuses fun with responsibility. IMG_5672Fanclub encounters empathy with coffee. Fanclub is moving through crisis with love, caring and chemistry. Fanclub moves through crisis fluidly. Fanclub is fluid thinking. Fanclub is sharing no grey heart.IMG_5663

 

 

 

 

 

About Quim Bigas

 

Fanclub in Utflukt

We just got the good news that our collective-writing ‘Partners in Crime’ is part of the Norwegian journal ‘Utflukt’ – an idealist driven magazine with a broad orientation towards culture, literature and social issues. Two issues in a row the focus has been on exploring collectivity as human fellowship, ideological principle, community organisational  tool, cultural expression and (new) economic reality. It’s an honor.

If in Oslo go and visit the release party on Thursday and give them all a hug from us.

Take care out there

‘Partners in Crime’ was originally presented as part of the RISK’s Shared Blog

Fanclub ♥ Inspiration Room

Fanclub has been invited by Bora Bora in Aarhus to be a part of their new initiative “Inspiration Room” – a research platform that offers four invited Danish artists the time and space to focus on artistic development and fine-tuning. 

During the two following weeks we will be in residency, first at Bora Bora and then at Vestjyllands højskole, taking the time to dig deep into our collective persona, detecting and (re-)shaping our collective ways. We have invited the dramaturge Paula Caspao as well as the dance-guru Anna Grip to visit and take part in our work and we look forward to see what these two meetings will bring..

Big thanks and thumbs up for this great and generous initiative by Bora Bora!
