This Container is an open host for texts and documents that come through and alongside choreographic thinking. It’s a recipe, but not for eating; a sequel to everything up until now; horizontal tourism; many feminists’ elegy; opinions weakened with time; an inaudible lesbian opera; a future ballet manifesto; dances and desires; cheating discipline; purposely misplaced; only poems; statements and speculations; a diagram for artistic research; and an incomplete encyclopaedia of random knowledge and dear dances. This Container takes seriously the various forms of expression choreographic thinking can nourish, questioning how such documents can perform when read through a choreographic support. This Container takes shape according to its content, without organising through dominant narratives or figures, weaving between the forms of writing; leaving holes and threads. This Container serves as an experimental archive of contemporary choreographic discourse,through its editions it provides a repertory of traces.
It began in Stockholm, 2016.
This Container has been supported by City of Mebourne and Konstnarsnamden, Stockholm.
