Manifeste #9 : In a Search for WE

Past: Friday, January 17, 2014 at 8 PM

During their stay at les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, Oberleithner and Chowaniec put emphasis on one chosen sentence of their Manifesto Open the circles of dependence. In a search for ideas and solutions contributing to the process of re-shaping and constructing a common future, they act in the specific local context of the city of Aubervilliers, inviting local children to look for solutions with the artists.

Chowaniec, Oberleithner and the kids, together will be confronted with the Manifesto and will embody it in various forms — of dance, song, drawing, video, text, during workshops on January 8th, 11th and 15th. With this shared practice, both choreographers attempt to break the usual scheme of the art production based on curators — artists — audience triangle relationship. Children play here a significant role of a stirring force which enables alternative relations demanded by the Manifesto, to arise. On the 17th of January, the audience is being invited to witness the results of this special encounter.

In a Search for WE is a project initiated by M. Chowaniec and V.Oberleithner. It reflects upon the common future of the western contemporary performing art scene. It embraces the movement globally as well as it tries to look for solutions in the local contexts. Project develops and exists modular, hosted by various institutions, festivals, organisations and individuals. At its base lays the Manifesto In a Search for WE which urges today’s citizens not only to re-think the current situation but rather to re-act here and now. The Manifesto is directed towards the society and it encourages the search for other ways of co-existance and collaboration then the ones proposed by the capitalistic system.
