I want to be ready! How does a „resisting body“ organize itself? How does it move? What kind of connections, relations and qualities of contact with other bodies does it create? How can one do justice to the plurality of the body in a political sense?

RESISTING BODIES shows the body as the site where political action and resistance is initiated, where the actions of one body and many bodies are negotiated. Political activism is physical: a resisting body remembers its own potentiality while moving. We approached the physicality by reproducing a practice of dissolving and disestablishing normalized hierarchical structures and replacing them with self-reliant movements.

„We would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the fact that thinking will end with the sun’s death! While we talk, the sun is getting older. It will explode in 4.5 billion years. With the sun’s death - what remains will belong to no one. Together with the earth human thinking will burn down on its horizon.“ (collage with words by J.F. Lyotard)

excellent birds is a choreography about designing a medium to save human body-intelligence. Before the sun’s explosion one has to create a body to transport movement-potential into the future: A bird-AI (Artificial-Itelligence) functions as a new form of body-memory. In EXCELLENT BIRDS we’re aksing the question how bodies are produced on different virtual levels and media.
