Inspired by Mary Overlie’s The Six Viewpoints
Initiated by Fabian Chyle. Created by students of the FH Düsseldorf/ Department of Social and Cultural Studies
In Snap Shot students of the Fachhochschule Düsseldorf will explore the theory of the six view points and will create kinesthetic interventions for public spaces. “The seed of the entire work of The Six Viewpoints is found in the simple act of standing in space. From this perspective the artist is invited to read and be educated by the lexicon of daily experience” (Mary Overlie). In Snap Shot the perception of space, time and body will be shifted by placing bodies out of context, molding the private and the public and by transforming daily movement experiences in idiosyncratic dance patterns. The developed material will be placed and performed around Tanzhaus nrw.

SHARED READINGS: ENCOUNTERS IN THE NOTEBOOKS OF MARY O’DONNELL AND JOAO DA SILVA
In the early 90s Mary O’Donnell and Joao da Silva shared within the frame of their pedagogic and artistic encounters at EDDC a practice of writing, ranging from questions of method as well as more philosophical and poetic concerns. For The Live Legacy Project they will unearth these notebooks and together read from them, opening the space for their past and future to be reinvented with the audience.
