At the Volkskundemuseum Wien this June, in alliance with Tanzquartier Wien and HES-SO University of  applied Sciences and Arts, Western Switzerland,  (Im)mobility #3 is plotting encounters with independent publishers, poets, writers, journalists, editors and artists whose work sits in along and with practices of dissida/ence & refusal.

(Im)mobility Salon #3 is not an event!

(Im)mobility Salon is imagined as an organisation of collective studies; a longing to rest in study, with many[1]. It is open to the public, free of charge, everyday between 11 and 17. Each day, 2 sessions will take place in the room-library: one restshop animated by Alix in the morning and one session (invocation) animated by one of the guests in the afternoon. (the exact program will be published soon).

(Im)mobility Salon #3 longs to turn a choreographic inquiry into dreams of open-ended rehearsals of suspensions, of resting together. Fomenting little cracks and openings, the (Im)mobility Salon series aspires to write and dance beyond overdetermined semantic fields (and their syntax of ruination), there where the implicit summons wordings, there where it doesn’t go without saying/dancing. The rest of the time will be dedicated to reading together, to translating between, across and within tongues, bodies, spaces, grounds, surrounds and temporalities; to murmuring amid ears, elbows and necks, and to doing nothing. Together!

A co-production between Volkskundemuseum, Tanzquartier Wien and Institute of Rest(s)
