Swiss participation at INDENT, a symposium on the body in performance

Performances as part of INDENT

ALTROVE by Alessandro Schiattarella
Thurs 22 Nov 2018 at Chaumukh, National School of Drama
New Delhi at 7 pm
A solo project in which Alessandro investigates the subject of being a professional dancer and at the same time a man suffering from a rare type of myopathy. The title Altrove (“elsewhere” in Italian) is a place of confrontation, dialogue, and play, where otherness becomes inspiration. Starting from his autobiographical experience of disability, the dancer looks for ways to hide otherness, to confront it, and finally, to accept it in oneself.

Spread over four days, the symposium INDENT collates practices and ideas that enable, expand, and cluster around current notions of the body in performance, through a programme of talks and performances.

The symposium and writing lab will have researcher, writer and translator Dima Hamadeh from Lebanon, who will be in India on the invitation of Pro Helvetia to participate as a provocateur and participant.

Indent also marks the launch of Gati’s annual journal, The Body and The Performative, a digital publication which in its first edition examines the ways in which the body demonstrates and deploys strategies of resistance, throwing up fresh questions about the relationship between the political and the aesthetic. The journal includes essays written by practitioners and academics based in Asia, Europe, South America and Africa. The journal will have contributions by Swiss writer Rahel Leupin, and also Christine Grenier (Brazil), Dima Hamadeh (Lebanon) and Kopano Maroga (Johannesberg) all supported by Pro Helvetia.
