‘We Dance Towards Sustainability (or do we)?’ is a collaborative, practice-based research project, exploring sustainability and community. The performance ‘Healing Forward: III points II cycles’, does not intend to illustrate the project itself but produce an exemplifying context for challenging existing theoretical propositions of sustainability as a transdisciplinary practice activated and achieved most robustly through collaboration, according to Hans Dieleman, Sascha Kagan and Volker Kirchberg – in Sustainability, Art and Reflexivity: why artists and designers may become key change agents in sustainability, and Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri in Multitude: War and Democracy in the Age of Empire, respectively.
After a year of collaborative studio research, three artists perform three distinct activities, each artist interchanging between processes for making dance, music composition and video projection, inviting audiences to join them at the turn of their second cycle. How can reflexivity be witnessed, learned and enhanced in communities? How can we develop more reflexivity and how could this help create more sustainable futures?
