If I Can't Dance I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution ~ 22 -28 November Performance ~ Myriam Lefkowitz inhabits the University of Amsterdam Library

| tag: Amsterdam

Myriam Lefkowitz inhabits the University of Amsterdam Library with collaborators Lendl Barcelos, Alkis Hadjandreou, Annick Kleizen, and Zoe Scoglio (DAI, 2019) to offer a number of immersive tactile experiences—one-on-one performances in which beholders are guided through choreographed “attention devices”, a collective experience immersed in darkness, and a book club that explores bodily dimensions of understanding—to co-construct perceptive processes outside of the usual contexts of representation.

Social Movement

8 November – 4 December 2018
At various venues throughout Amsterdam  



As the year draws to a close, so too does the seventh artistic programme of If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution. Since 2017, we have been working with artists Mounira Al Solh, keyon gaskin, Myriam Lefkowitz, and Charlotte Prodger on the production of new work commissions, and Rhea Anastas and Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez on major new research projects. While each has followed an individual trajectory of development, in November we will present these together as a month-long programme of live performances, experiential situations, screenings, and discursive events, which unfold at various venues in Amsterdam.

Complementing these presentations is a thematic inquiry into the notion of ‘Social Movement’, which has been explored concurrently through a series of reading groups. During the upcoming programme this inquiry is extended with a keynote lecture, a series of radio broadcasts, and a library of reading.
