Europe in Motion

Österreichische Erstaufführungbrutproduktion

Together with the partners Bimeras (Istanbul), Dance4 (Nottingham) and imagetanz, springdance (Utrecht) developed a European exchange programme for young choreographers and performers. The programme consists of five exchange phases whereby each partner will be hosting a phase between 2011 and 2012 with about ten participating artists.
From 2 to 11 March it’s Vienna’s turn. Accompanied by British choreographer and performer Jonathan Burrows and Vienna-based visual artist Gerald Nestler, who undertook ‘field research‘ as a stock market broker and trader in the 1990s, the participants’ works and future plans are considered together. Europe in Motion in Vienna particularly explores how the financial-economic complex (increasingly determined by algorithms) exerts a lasting influence on the processes of everyday life. The exchange programme and the subsequent presentation – in the form of a performance – attempt to find a new interpretation of omnipresent terms and practices whose meanings today are essentially defined by economic aspects (for example: “speculation”, “credit”, “agency”, “leverage”), and thus to work out suggestions for recovering the potential for actions in the sense of a “Speech Act Algorithm” with respect to economic primacy (“from transaction to action”).

Moderation Jonathan Burrows, Gerald Nestler Workshop participants, performances Katharina Aigner, Fernando Belfiore, Talin Büyükkürkciyan, Gary Clarke, Mary Kate Connolly, Setareh Fatehi Irani, Fatih Gençkal, Lise Lendais, Cemil Can Yusufoglu etc.
