We have more and more difficulty to reach places with pre-defined proposals. We decided not to do that anymore (at least for now). We propose this workshop to be a "bumping" where the experience shocks us. Let's start the conversation with two pretexts:

1 - About the invention of a body: to experience the body as a polyphony, something that is both subject and object, that acts and is acted, that speaks and is spoken. A body that escapes from integrity, coherence, unity and embraces the deviation, the slit, the gagging, the holes. We venture to say that what interests us performatively is to activate a body that hears voices, that means, a body that hears itself as another.

2 - About the invention of a coexistence: We propose to think the coexistence instigated by the French writer Maurice Blanchot when he says that the conversation takes place in the blank, in the silence, between one speech and another.

We are interested in forging a coexistence that embraces separation, the abyss, the disagreement, the disjunction. Sometimes we read this and we think of nihilism, but no! Disagreement is friction, friction produces fire, fire heats up and is vital!

This is our invitation.
