Over the months of November and December, Pinkmetalpetal Productions is collaborating with Berlin-based artist Lisa Hoffmann to curate different experiences open to those who are curious about imagining a world beyond capitalism.
In three different sessions of 48 hours, eight to ten people are invited to share and create a space together as a means of transferring post-capitalist imaginations into an embodied praxis and vice versa. The project is drawing on input by late theorist Mark Fisher and his work on postcapitalist desire, Situationist tactics and the notion of worlding. Different embodiment practices from dance and theatre, spatial narration techniques, character creation, collective cooking, as well as other methods will softly guide the participants.
By delving deep into a collective embodied experience over 48hrs the aim is to evolve the individual's perspective through a collective praxis and later to reflect and carry on the discourse long after the events by means of a webpage called Bindles in which the collective mind-body can remain in communication online. It is our aim that in early 2022 we will invite the participants back to a larger event that culminates all of the experiences and what has developed over this period to make it accessible for the wider public.
The 48hrs experiences will also be supported with input from master improvisation movement teacher Michael Schumacher.
Participants are invited via an open call that can be found here.
