"The economy of language and something as linguistically ambiguous as the moving body is central to my choreographic practice. Of particular interest to me is the meeting of the critical, supposedly objective or rational, with the expressive – the over-linguistic meeting the pre-linguistic. I delight in the lively incompatibilities of these encounters, successful failures in translation, productive mis-translations. What are the conditions that codify these languages? And how are these forms leveraging value?—questions I often ask of my work.

Hmm.. how to teach around this in three hours? Well we are going to get juicy with our physicality and our thoughts. 

We are going to start in something I call the Holding Pattern—watching Ciara in the Ride It video is good preparation.

You must bring a short text (up to 400 words) that you've learnt by heart. 

Should be an article of cultural criticism, or a piece of formalised gossip, or a funding application cover letter or the like... not fiction. Hyper-realist poetry is fine.

Wear trainers, you know.. everybody needs a little grip sometimes."

 

ADAM LINDER is an Australian choreographer and dancer based in Berlin. He makes works for the theatre and Choreographic Services. 

These works have been commissioned, presented and hired by HAU Hebbel-am-Ufer Berlin, Institute of Contemporary Art London, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Museum of Modern Art Warsaw, American Realness NYC, Kampnagel Hamburg and Frieze LIVE London, amongst other engagements.
