Be part of a Liquid Social Sculpture
Detox Dance/ public performance / daily training 14th – 18th of June 2016 / 5pm – 6:30 pm at the corner Duttweiler/Pfingstweid / Zurich 5

Detox Dance training is dedicated to the development and study of a liquid perception of the self in mixed groups as a model for contemporary societies. The collective has developed a personal choreography nourished by Roma traditional dance movements as well as martial arts elements. In collaboration with the choreographer Esther-Maria Häusler (Zurich) we were creating an easy-to-learn square dance out of the found material. The sound line was found in collaboration with Ed Repair. Detox Dance Premiere was held the 25th of June 2016 at 5pm in the space of the Parallel Event “Donate To Create” of Manifesta 11. It was a very stormy and rainy moment of the day. We had many participants and a great gathering after the public performance.

Detox Dance popped up in an other part of the city later on, at Helvetiaplatz the 14th of July at 7pm. There we manifested our presences as liquid identities in a public space without an official permission.
The symposium “Open Theory Lectures” was held in Shedhalle Zürich the 3rd of September. In this institutional space Detox Dance was performed in context with art theoretical discourses questioning the presence of Roma Art inside and outside of institutions. Lecturers and the local audience were participating.
At the panel WORK, MIGRATION, MEMES, PERSONAL GEOPOLITICS the 8th of September at Toni-Areal we were invited by CAS/MAS in Curating. Audience and lecturers were participating in the late nights public dance performance. The event had been organised in cooperation with Manifesta 11 / Parallel Events.
