About this Event
Michele Rizzo invites us for a conversation with his colleague and friend Toni Steffens, to talk about his current research in relationship to his body of work.
In the attempt of exploring qualities of being which are not oriented towards and within the experience of being a body, the research aims to discover the possibility - or impossibility- of inhabiting and exploring space-time through immateriality, exploring the senses available to our perception, but as well working towards desensitization and dematerialization.
As opposed to consigning it indissolubly to the realm of the unreal, imagination emerges as a constitutive part of both intimate and social experiences. When the body is gone, but the gaze remains, the space emerges like a wild animal in the forest.
You are welcome to join the talk and a small drink afterwards.
Michele Rizzo is a choreographer and artist. In the past years he has made works inspired by the experience of dancing in clubs, responding to the believe that choreography manifests as the resultant of a process of decentralisation of agency, a distillation of the remains of the constant battle between the tendency to preserve and construct and the one to decompose and surrender, the overlaps between insiderness and outsiderness.
Toni Steffens studied contemporary dance and choreography in Cologne and Amsterdam. Toni’s approach to performing arts navigates ethical and political concerns through the use of senses, perception and emotions and explores queer eco feminism, new materialism, animism, emotions and chaos.
