Questions towards next week event, JUNE 8th and 10th

Hi people, i just want to share some questions who pops out in the first Enjambre session, we will have a couple more next week, on tuesday June 8th and thursday June 10th.
What do you think is a network?
When do I sink into a network?
Does a network have North & South?
East & West?
Does it have hierarchy? Diamond Shape? Three-dimensional & you can spin it around?
What did networks [used to be] called before they were called networks?

The Slick Filling of Aches and Cavities by Lindsey Drury offers a voyeuristic window into the private deterioration of a romantic relationship, while shining a light on the nature love and the intimacy of consumerism.

Movement acoustics by Martin Lanz focuses on the resonance of the movement. Lanz brings his fascination with architecture, physics and philosophy into this piece

Enjambre 1.1

We come together – we really like to. As we all experience and are aware of, a great deal of coming together can sort of happen via virtual mediums. Not only that, but in preparation to come together, we deal and wheel through distances and time zones, and when we do come together, we are still each apart (and a part). Being a part of something larger, being perhaps a potentially equal part of something larger, being a participant, being a beneficiary, being a self-promoter and/or a self-initiator… (Are these the goal or means to a goal?)

We began by looking at mobility – the wanting it, the difficulties in getting it, and the organizing around both. The coming together keeps being central, life giving. Self-organization through artists networks, like Sweet and Tender and Embassy of or the community of dance-tech.net, with ? members, are examples of close-to-home networks we are interested in investigating more closely: How are they working? How successfully are they at bringing together? (Is this really the criteria we want to analyze them by?)

We want to conduct this investigation as a practice and in the flesh, though we want to also connect beyond the immediacy of our location and time, and we want to leave a trace that can be re-trace by others. Space and time – “networking” lives in that same intersection of x=space and y=time as movement, live performance and life itself.

There are big networks and small ones. Inside some there are other units—a smaller networks contained within. These usually are the more efficient ones—maybe we can take/share their mechanisms. That’s why we are inviting a diverse community to participate in this project—to have as many tools as possible to work with.

We want to conduct this practice in an open source kind of way – with temporary structures to enter and exit from, created by and with all present. Perhaps our game plans can produce a visual or an experiential picture of our particular network behavior, and we can use that to look at other networks. At the least we can expand our network or its potential through the representation and documentation of our experiences. A population of networks will coalesce and be reflected in the space we provide through Movement Research’s Blog and Critical Correspondence. They will decide if an exchange is possible, desirable, productive, but they will know about each other.
