Dance and Resistance Endangered Human Movements Vol.2


Dance and Resistance Endangered Human Movements Vol.2

nadaproductions / Amanda Piña

I think the dances can be regarded as part of a human reservoir of movement and relation beyond spoken or written language. 
Amanda Piña

Dance and Resistance is the second instalment from the series Endangered Human Movements, which focuses on dance traditions threatened with extinction. In this second instalment the Mexican-Chilean choreographer Amanda Piña and the Swiss visual artist Daniel Zimmermann bring dance forms from Tabiteuea, Arizona and Indonesia to the stage, that had been catalogued as ‘ritual dances’ by anthropologists in the last century. What might these historical dances mean today? Can the body offer resistance in our neoliberal market economy? For each location, the makers invite local participants, enabling themselves to be influenced by the spirit and the economy of the city where the performance is taking place.


For this performance we're still looking for participants for the preparatory workshops and the performances.
