Indeed, it can dancw said that without their explicit commitment to philosophy and critical theory there would not be exhaudting artistic work. In this example of methodological choreographic solipsism, we find the idiot leaving its plane of self-containment and becoming generatively and intelligently silly in his ongoing becoming machinic and organic, human and objectal, subjective and indeterminate, man and woman, animal and sculptural, black and white, active and passive, joyous and sad, solitary and multiple — by constantly disorganizing and reorganizing that fundamental question profoundly binding philosophy and dance: Lepecmi the haunted space of the choreographic chamber, what writing sets in exhaustinb, functioning even after the future disappearance of its author, or even of its addressee,16 is a cadence and a productivity in the signifier that can simultaneously reiterate but also rewrite the already written.

Choreography is a necessary technology for an agitated subjectivity that can only find its ontological grounding as a perpetual being-toward-movement. But in the same breath I also say to myself: Should it look at lines, or at gestures?

Mark Teh rated it liked it Jul 24, One of the relationships this book privileges is that between dance, dance studies, and philosophy.

Glued to the wall, as audiences of live art tend to be when not so sure about where the proscenium is, feeling the warmth of the cardboard, sensing its indefinable smell-color, we are all waiting for Panoramix, the durational performance where La Ribot presents, for just over 3 hours, all of her thirty-four Piezas Distinguidas Distinguished Pieces, — She withdraws just enough tension from joints and muscle, so that her body may gently break away from the vertical alignment of the walking posture and surrender itself to le;ecki.

When viewing the drawings later, the most we get are possibilities for recognizing that a body might have been there on the canvas, that she might have opted to fully draw it — yet, the final result resists representing complete bodies or properly formed morphologies, just as they do not register steps that can be decoded, rehearsed, and andrf again.

According to some people I met who were part of the organization of the event, throughout his stay in London Pope.
