Residency Mårten Spångberg "Anthropology" in Vienna

"Anthropology" is the second part of a trilogy addressing relations between dance and ecology. The project researches alternative narratives concerning ecology and its relations to the body, understood as a possible intermediary between modalities of organising life. In what ways can dance function as a laboratory for how we can approach the world differently? Perhaps what is needed is not to regulate life as we know it but to labour for the possibilities of new forms of life. Not climate change but a change of the climate, climate being what all beings, creatures, animate and inanimate, share and contribute to. It’s not a matter of commitment to save the world but instead a letting go of established dichotomies between, for example, nature and culture, work and leisure, intuition and science, human and non-human, subject and object. Anthropology proposes vague forms of being with, cohabitation and exchange that dissolve information and knowledge in favour of experience and wisdom. Instead of definition availability, instead of from here to there, a landscape that expands with us.
