Saturday May 27, 17:00-17:30(im)perfekta koreografier is a performance in which different, distinct voices dance in a polyphonic conversation.

Guided by sudden twists and prolonged pauses, this danced conversation allows for each particular movement to contemplate its own peculiar meaning. Separated yet joined, different spaces, real and fictitious, are formed out of contagious humour and beautiful severity. Empathetic and from a distance, (im)perfekta koreografier tells a story of interpersonal narratives, causing the limitations of language to explode.

This performance is one out of a series of explorations within an art and research project of the same title. Drawing on Crip Theory, the project challenges normative conceptions about abilities, bodies, movement and language. It recognizes and makes use of so-called intellectual and cognitive “impairment” as distinctive and highly developed abilities. Additionally, the project takes a stand against ‘integrated dance’ by advocating and implementing equality beyond normative ideals. On stage and through the creative process, different senses and sensations are explored as constitutive of artistic creation in a social community without hierarchies.

During The Biennial, we are showing part 1 of 4 within this project. Welcome to an utterly perfect (im)perfect choreography!
