Mårten Spångberg visits the university to give a six days workshop. The starting point of the session is to make a full night dance performance in six days, this producing something like ten minutes of choreography per work day. Obviously conventional models of improvisation will not be used but the motivation is to create a set piece further without using any kind of scores or instruction set ups.
An initial motive is to address the "nature of time", with the stress on nature, in relation to contemporary urban society and it's experience and modes of consuming time. The process wishes to address economies of attention, vis a vis taking versus offering time, time as divided respectively expanding, considered in relation to aesthetic experience in the sense of producing relations respectively a withdrawal. The group will further explore the possibility for an object related understanding of performance in favor of the Austin based paradigm that have dominated the last 20 years.
