Performances

fxtrouble is only that small friendship group. Like an individual does, the collective seeks to communicate with others, go into exchange, facilitate space and discussion for and with others, be part of a network of learning and questioning, creating and sharing artistic work. Questions about co-authorship, the role of the audience, experiential knowledge production are crucial to our collective way of working. Modes of exposure, communication, presence. We create moments for visibility and establish temporary communities in which the rules are negotiated.

Think of words like any physical movement, or body. They have a shape, rhythm, surface, sound, sensation. Start Writing with the Focus on these Qualities and do not care baout the meaning. Use your Proprioception to approach your thoughts. Like in imprivising with movement (the body) wait for the words to come to you. One word triggers another word. Leave time for words to come in one after the other. Do not speed up.

More thoughts & scores

 

We are attending each other (and others, maybe), entertaining each other, moving in “purposeless motion”, playing with mediums hierarchies, composing instantly, blurring authorship, claiming space with the unfinished, intervening the space with intimacy, opening up to vulnerability, sourcing each other, serving each other, manipulating, implying, enticing, celebrating randomness, connecting and disconnecting.

 

I think a lot about how the audience can be more involved, how we can let them choose their positions and change their roles (as we do). Something about the dock11 performance kept them very passive and still and us very much in the center. Maybe we want to shift that? Also physically, maybe we shouldn’t be in the center.
