Walking Theory [TkH] and Per.Art invite you to:
 
On Trial Together (Berlin episode)
Tanz im August
August 20, 2012, 8.00 pm, Sophiensæle, Berlin
 
Performance On Trial Together is a hybrid public event between theatre play, choreography, social game, and happening. It takes place in a theatre venue, thereby reaffirming the role of theatre in the symbolization of the social. However, the stage is reappropriated and transformed into a place in public space where citizens discuss issues important to their society and speculate about its future through fictional constructions. The authors base this performance on principles of social, live action and role-playing games, open for all audience members to take part in. This concept invites the audience to create fictional situations out of the initial plots: Up and Down, Then Up and Again Down of the Workers’ Self-Management, The Others and Collective Intelligence Test. The performance ends with an open forum for discussion about experiences related to participation in this performance and stories created within.
Those stories and social choreography are temporary, changeable, and they largely depend on us. Thus, On Trial Together becomes a theatrical story we tell ourselves about ourselves, and a choreographic spectacle we create for no one’s eyes. Each performance is a unique event (episode) that starts off with the situation created in the previous event in the chain, thus constructing an open series with unpredictable results.
 
The performance is a part of the wider project Examining communitas, comprising theoretical-artistic research and performance.
 
The research is focused on different historical and current forms of social, cultural and artistic performances that “spectacularize” the collective and mass body, as well as on contemporary dance as an artistic discipline that emancipates and grants visibility to the liberated individual body. The project is contextually-based and the authors observe these body images in the framework of social systems that characterized the 20th century as well as their own life experience: eastern socialism and western neoliberal capitalism.

Teorija koja Hoda [TkH] i Per.Art Vas pozivaju na:
 
Communitas na ispitu (epizoda Berlin)
Tanz im August
20. avgust 2012, 20.00, Sophiensæle, Berlin
 
Performans Ane Vujanović i Saše Asentića Communitas na ispitu biće izveden na festivalu savremenog plesa Tanz im August u Berlinu.
  
Performans Communitas na ispitu je hibridni javni događaj između pozorišne predstave, koreografije, društvene igre i hepeninga. Izvodi se u pozorištu, reafirmišući njegovu ulogu u simbolizaciji društvenog. Međutim, scena ovde postaje mesto u javnom prostoru gde građani raspravljaju o bitnim društvenim pitanjima i promišljaju moguću budućnost društva. Izvedba se zasniva na principima društvenih igara, otvorenih za učešće svih članova publike. Tim postupkom, publika je pozvana da kreira nekoliko fikcionalnih situacija, razvijajući i transformišući ponuđene sižee: Uspon i pad, zatim uspon i ponovni pad radničkog samoupravljanjaDrugi i Test kolektivne inteligencije. Performans se završava otvorenim forumom o iskustvu izvođenja i pričama koje su nastale tokom njega.
Te priče i socijalna koreografija su privremene, promenljive i umnogome zavise od učesnika, odnosno same publike, čime svaka izvedba postaje jedinstven događaj (epizoda) u okviru otvorene serije čiji se rezultati ne mogu predvideti. Ovako postavljen, Communitas na ispitu je pozorišna priča koju pričamo o nama, sami sebi i koreografski spektakl koji stvaramo ni za čiji pogled.
 
Performans je deo šireg projekta, koji se sastoji se od teorijsko-umetničkog istraživanja i performansa.
 
Istraživanje je fokusirano na različite istorijske i aktuelne oblike socijalnih, kulturnih i umetničkih performansa koji spektakularizuju kolektivno i masovno telo i, sa druge strane, na savremeni ples kao umetničku disciplinu koja emancipuje i daje vidljivost oslobođenom individualnom telu. Kontekstualno pristupajući temi, autori ove slike tela posmatraju u okviru društvenih sistema koji karakterišu 20. vek, a pripadaju i njihovom sopstvenom životnom iskustvu – istočni socijalizam i zapadni neoliberalni kapitalizam.
