Beyond the Line I

2 – 7 December 2013


WUK/ttp, Vienna, Austria

Beyond the Line (Part 1) was conceived as a prelude, prologue or even a ‘warm up’ for the current project Choreo-Graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line. Over a number of days, the key researchers – Nikolaus Gansterer, Mariella Greil and Emma Cocker – worked together in the studio space at WUK, Vienna, exploring the points of slippage as the practices of drawing, dance and writing enter into dialogue, overlap and collide. Focused on the experimental and improvisatory, Beyond the Line (Part 1) provided a context for exploring points of connectivity and for sharing the process and technics (technologies, techniques, tactics) of enquiry rather than for the production of resolved works or definitive outcomes. Revolving around the question ‘How to begin?’, this short, intensive workshop initiated the beginnings of a collaborative, interdisciplinary vocabulary which will be further put under pressure as part of Choreo-Graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line.

Beyond the Line was kindly supported by Bmukk Austria and Nottingham Trent University.
