The Occupation of New Dance Legacies (In Two Parts) by Jeremiah Day 

7-9 December 2022



I. Workshop – Getting Moving, Talking, Making

Wednesday 7 & Thursday 8 December 12:00-15:00 at Spiti Yoga

(limited participation, reservations [email protected]

For the workshop at Spiti Yoga, to introduce some strategies coming from New Dance, we will try out and try on scores from Anna Halprin, Steve Paxton and Simone Forti, leading to making short improvisations together.  Please come dressed and prepared for running, rolling, crawling, and some moments of touching and being touched.  We will be working with moving and talking at the same time and so while people are welcome to keep distance and wear masks, it might be tough to do so.  Please bring pen and paper.   



II. Public Performance – Getting Showing, Being Showed 

Friday 9 December at State of Concept, 19:00

Jeremiah Day shares with us his work with the “New Dance” tradition that offers the basis for a different public and community model of culture.  Αt State of Concept the public is invited to watch and listen, as  the workshop leads  to a different mode of sharing, combining demonstration, talk and performance.  

Day elaborates and enacts a set of principles that actualize art as central to what Hannah Arendt called “the web of human relationships,” in which memory depends on culture to be understandable.
