WHO'S THE PARTY NOW, SISTER? INTERVENTION
A perfromative work and presentation of collective admiration and active remembering of feminist performances and practices from 1960’s & 1970’s. During Tanzkongress 2016 we worked with intervention as a contemporary contextualization - a mode of making visible forgotten or marginalised artists works, asking, how can we work with re- enactments as a political means, an act of duty that asks: what gets remembered, what gets forgotten, by whom and how? How can we perform (our) history in the present, how can we put ‘now’ in dialogue with the past? And what does a second-look (perspective) on these works tells us about the situation in dance and performance today?
