This encounter embodies an act of study, as Erin Manning refers to it “an act that delights in the activation of the as-yet-unthought”. It offers up artistic materials generated and accumulated over a yearlong artistic enquiry as a landscape to wade through, collectively and in-time. In doing so, this encounter hopes for a patient experimentation where a curation of the materials can occur, through the affect of the relation that is in touch with them.

The encounter is made up of presence, time, flesh, action, memory, care, gesture, pandemic, sensation, distance, relation and fiction. It makes up an inter-human relation that produces a live and performative, artistic and dramaturgical methodology and event. In turning to fragments of artistic material and the affect of a relation, it could be considered a task-based-study in what Edouard Glissant called “consenting to not be a single being”. 

Questions that the encounter brings into being but does not necessarily seek a fixed answer for, include: What kind of performer / audience relations emerge from framing moments of presentation as moments of “collective study”? By rehearsing in-time, embodied relations where response and responsibility, trust and collectivity and being in and out of sync are reckoned with, how are we (those participating) practicing thought-in-motion and change? How can the force of form in this encounter remain emergent?


Unfortunately, the presentation is available for students and teachers at the SKH Department of Dance only.
