Radio-Choreography: Living Traces
30. 7. 24, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Radio-Choreography: Living Traces explores various ways of broadcasting dance on the radio. By transforming choreographic practice into sound, it brings together a collection of dance acts which were performed by female choreographers in contexts of resistance and migration. Crossing geopolitical and temporal borders, the show will travel between Vienna 1913, Beirut 2019, Berlin 1942 and Teheran 2021. Listening to invisible bodies and unruly voices, the show combines performance, live mixing, archival material, field recordings and electronic sounds. This episode, developed for the Summer Academy with special guest Shahrzad Nazarpour, transforms the Zwergelgartenpavillon into a temporary radio station, broadcasting live on Radio Radiofabrik.

Radio-Choreography is an artistic research project initiated and led by Netta Weiser, in collaboration with choreographers, researchers, sound and radio artists. The project explores the transformation of dance into sound, the relations between live broadcasting and muted histories, as well as acts of listening as modes of being together. Since 2019 the project has been presented in various formats and contexts, most recently at the Akademie der Künste and KUNST WERKE in Berlin, Tanzquartier and Tonspur in Vienna, WDR and Tanzmuseum in Cologne, Villa Medici in Rome, the Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe and others.
