Collective Writing Machines is the final presentation by Diego Gil of his studies at the Amsterdam Master of Choreography. The performance will take place in Het Veem Theater on 27 May 2012. Singing and signing words in a paper as they emerge in and out from mouth to paper (and back), non-stop and when stopping, feeling the momentum of the next impulse to start again.
During the two years of the master program, Diego Gil has been investigating writing practices in a processual way, seating or walking alone, with people, music, news, and in several other circumstances; always assuming that feelings, thoughts, and words are crystallizations of the same choreographic movement: a movement of becoming that actualizes potentials back and forth, tracing in its way a body/writing-rhythm.
The writing practices are made to be disseminated to the participants attending the final presentation. We will create small “collective machines” while writing together, in order to feel the intensity that only an activity made with more than one can achieve.
The event will start at 16:00 and reservations are needed since participants will be asked to attend in small groups during different times of the day:
- 16:00 Group 1
- 17:30 Group 2
- 19:00 Group 3
