The body of the artist is present

Activiteit: Talk or presentation at a workshop/seminar


I know there is this music score, with all its melodic and harmonic analyses, with the whole musical tradition explained by musicologists, in institutions and texts; I know there is the sound, the movement patterns or the recordings and the aesthetic idea of the composer or the choreographer. I know there is a space and a time in which these art objects have to unfold. But what about my embodied narrative and trajectory, my perception and action through which I not only understand but fully reveal this art?
An artist. A body. A presence.
From where to start? From a dot, taking for a walk — following Paul Klee. From a face, multiplying exchange — following Marina Abramovic. From breathing, over life to sound — following Helmut Lachenmann. From an artistic exploration of a day in my life – following Samuel Beckett. By presenting these artistic perspectives, I wish to unveil some of the enabling conditions of performing art and its embodied constraints and freedom. They take you through glimpses of the artistic research field on the body in performance.
