A lab around scores, experimental writing and collective discursive practices
Research and forms of collective dramaturgy are of central interest in Sarma’s collaboration with workspacebrussels. The laboratory Popela’s Paralipomena assembles a diverse group of artists and researchers for reflection and exchange around scores, experimental writing and collective discursive practices.
In dance and choreography meaning is understood as embodied in specific practices – form does matter. It doesn’t come as a surprise then that many artists in the field of dance and performance not only look into the underpinnings of the discourses surrounding their work, but that alternative discursive practices and experimental writing have become the very core of their work. By connecting with the principles of Oulipo, the “workplace for potential literature” that saw a creative challenge in constraints, current questions appear in a different light. Can the playful formalism of experimental writing provide a critical view upon the rapid and superficial consumption of knowledge in our information society? What can the approach of scores as obstacles or sites for negotiation mean for artistic research and creation?
