invitation poétics is a set of strategies, values and sensory/meaning structures.

 

it gathers different aspects and concepts of invitation.

 

poétics create arrangements to versify sensitive, conceptual and procedural contents of the phenomenological experience and qualify them as experiences in the artistic manifestation (Gunther, 2013). 

who (is allowed to) host? how do you host a situation? how are you hosted by an event? when does hosting become guesting? can you guess the protocols by being (t)here?

language transition

sharing a common language is the basis of a community. during migration processes, shifting languages is one of the first tangible marks of be(com)ing a foreign. 

what if, instead of focusing on the process of translation as a replacing act (this language for that), we embodied the act of wor(l)ds in coexistence: a process of language transition (this language and that and then this language and the one we might invent in the slippage between this and that)

exercising the practice of listening as an universal language.

a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question opens a question

what it means to dwell when a sense of dis-orientation  takes the foreground?

 

what does it mean to be an artist in residence?

What it changes when one, as an artist, is granted the state of being in residence?

what is a residency?

can I exercise modes of turning “residency” into an action verb? residencing?

 

what would entail the act of resi(denc)ing? 

who is able to grant such a position, or title, for both the person and the context (the situation)?

how one can become an-“other-placed”-person by moving their location of dwelling, or by moving the location of their creative practice’s dwelling?

how can one, through dis-location, re-relate with one’s own identit(ies) and senses of be-longing through the acknowledgment of alterity?

 

can residencies be a creative way of manifesting the sense of (dis)location?

 

can location be experienced through the perspective of time, temporal situations?

how can one be response-able to a given environment and still exercise the ability to __place availability, affordability, desirability through poetics of con-fusion, with-ness?

 

how has the notion of invitation in choreography re/arranged the poétics of (temporary) coexistence through my practice?
