The Dancer as Agent Collection


(c) Brynjar Abel Bandlien


The Dancer as Agent Collection is an unwrapping of The Dancer as Agent conference (DOCH Stockholm, November 2013). Several dancers who attended the conference accepted commissions from DOCH to draw, write and speak about ideas that had been present there and have continued roaming since, occupying other times and places. Various objects were made, including essays, conversations, maps, films, materials and active texts. Eight booklets, a card and a map appeared in print, and the complete collection is housed on Oral Site. It creates a context in which the contours of agency that emerge from dancers' artistic practices can be bounced off, wandered through, felt, fit and shared.

The essays are accessible through this page (below), and also embedded in the larger The Dancer as Agent Collection at Oral Site.

The Dancer as Agent Collection was launched on Dec. 1st, 2014.
