Feminist Ways of Dance (2022) – Participatory event
Feminist Dance Pathways invest in a playful and open way in a constructive relationship with one’s own past, opening up a sensibility for one’s own artistic and cultural context with the aim of mapping existing artistic, cultural and social strategies and the possibility of building new ones, in light of the ongoing economic, political and social crises.
Visitors will be invited into a playful and inclusive structure where, together with guests, they will activate the topics addressed by recently published and selected publications, from which the curatorial team draws discursive and methodological inspiration for the application and folding of the messages into life. We have selected the following publications for this event: Ana Dubljević: The Feminist Pornscapes, on Feminist Dramaturgical Thinking in Dance and Performance Practice (Stanica, 2021); Malina Schmid Snoj: Samo en ples. Zgodba Marte Paulin Schmidt (Just a Dance. The Story of Marta Paulin Schmidt, Mladinska knjiga and SLOGI, 2022); the new publication Within Time, Beyond Time. A Journey Through CoFestival, edited by Nika Arhar (Nomad Dance Academy Slovenija and Kino Šiška, 2022); and the thematic section »Perspectives of Women Performing Arts Creators« edited by Primož Jesenko and Jasmina Založnik and published in the journal Dialogi 5-6 2022. The list is certainly limited and selective, but we believe that together we will raise many questions that will help visitors approach and intervene in many other works that we have not been able to address in this event.
Invited guests: Ana Dubljević, Malina Schmid Snoj, Nika Arhar, Primož Jesenko, Pia Brezavšček, Katarina Pejović, Đorđe Balmazović, Joanna Leśnierowska, Peter Pleyer, Bojana Piškur, Maša Radi Buh in dialogue with the curatorial team and visitors to the event.
