Brussels Edition

Common-Works is an ongoing edition-based performance project. Together with 10 performers, it deals with the development of collective, semi-improvised movement practices that aim to relocate notions on discourse and representation within collectively experienced intensities such as flow, embodiment and notions of becoming. Each edition starts from the content and context of the previous one. For this edition, we asked ourselves how poetics of representation can be reinscribed through politics of care. The focus is set on creating a safe, social space in order to develop theoretical as well as practice-based strategies on how to collectively share embodied knowledge to then formulate alternative structures of representation in relation to the performing body.

The work has so far been realized in Taipei, Senegal, Amsterdam, and Munich and is now in its 5th edition in Brussels.
