Spectacles #1 – #4

Spectacles is a research by Sara Manente starting from the distance between language and experience, specifically the experience of dance and performance.

Following the critical line that considers the overcapitalization of language as its transformation into an oppressive tool, the research aims to restore and emancipate the relation between language and dance from a point of view of performativity. What are the limits of language to talk about aesthetic experience? What do we talk about when we talk about dance? How do we talk about something we don’t know how to talk about? Which language performs a choreography? How to move with(out) words?
