NOT YET (STILL HERE) ALREADY GONE
- 05 February 2021–03 March 2021 Singapur
Although dance and performance are embodied, ephemeral and process-based art forms, there have always been attempts to notate, “write dance”, record movements, and somehow capture live events through scores, maps and diagrams. But how can we become more aware of the flow of our perception, trace the immanent micro-choreographies of thinking and notate the act of sense-making? In a research residency at Dance Nucleus, Singapore Nikolaus Gansterer will explore in correspondance with artists Daniel Kok, Chung Nguyen, Nitphat Ong Polchai, Pat Toh fundamental questions pertaining notation, subjective forms of mapping and modes of diagramming relational thinking. Through transformative shifts from idea to sign, word to image, trace to figure, and material to movement, strategies of inscription of spatial and embodied states are collectively experienced and invented.
