PERFORMANCE ACADEMY is launched in 2011:
The international Interaktionslabor in Göttelborn collaborates with XMLab, Donlon Dance Company, and Centre de Création Choréographique Luxembourgeois TROIS C-L on creating a new PERFORMANCE ACADEMY, a shared platform of workshop spaces and research facilities for performance-media design, interactional and wearable concepts, and investigations of gestural processes, protocols, and social choreography.
With its partners XMLab, Donlon Dance Company, and Centre de Création Choréographique Luxembourgeois TROIS C-L, Interaktionslabor shares the sense that the concept of research should be opened up (again), and aims to acknowledge the relevance of experimental treatments of actuality – of forms of collaborative creation – that may take us beyond the perspectives and protocols of (established academic) inquiry as we know it. Which is why we have chosen gesture as focus of the inaugural workshop – gesture as practice that is at once aesthetic, corporeal, and political.
The workshop in August will inaugurate a 12-months series of performance and research events open to individual, collective, and institutional actors especially from the Greater Region (Belgium, France, Luxembourg) to facilitate the sharing of approaches, experiences, and reflections. The events are varied, including workshops, hacklabs, and symposia, but will be organized under the common umbrella of the PERFORMANCE ACADEMY. The new academy plans to include exhibitions and concert/installations in an open platform for the exchange of new performance and media work; locations for these events include venues in Saarbrücken and on the coal mine campus in Göttelborn.
