From "Rupert", his August 2023 residency in Vilnius, Marc Norbert Hörler (DAI, 2020) shares some remarkable updates on his activities. Mediations, articulations, "hecaetean lines", "for heat and fervor", and, last but not least his nomination for the Swiss Performance Art Award, which we at DAI, it goes without words, more than fully endorse. Read his communique here.
What a FANTASTIC appointment: Gabi Ngcobo succeeds Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy as the next director of Kunstinstituut Melly ! DAI sends it warmest congratulations to Gabi ( who generously contributed to our program in 2017) while we commend the selection committee chaired by Yolande Zola Zoli van der Heide. For the large Rotterdam based DAI-community we hope and trust that the many connections and affiliations with Melly will continue to be warm and convivial. Read the full press release here.
The cheapest meat, commonly sold as a 'whole chicken’, provides the most common image of headlessness. In “Headflesh” the animal decapitates itself, but its wound is thriving and becomes a motor for movement. As a post-gender cyborg, genetically altered and abundantly multiplied, the chick/en/hen turns against the nuclear Oedipal family. Iga Śśćk (DAI, 2022) presents this performance, in collaboration with Miiel Ferráez (DAI, 2021) and commissioned by Tanz im August festival as a part of a parkour series "Interconnecting Dance & Ecology", on the final day of the festival (26.08.2023) in the Volskpark Rehberge, (sharp 14.00).
