Fantasmical Anatomy Lesson#1 The tongue, Desire for Language by Anne Juren
Over the past few years, Anne Juren has been unfolding a Fantasmical Anatomy as real as a piece of bone. Seeking to expand the concept of choreography in her work, Juren’s distinctive practice challenges boundaries between public and private, between outer and inner space, by trespassing normative boundaries and experimenting with kinaesthesia, poetry and sensuality. Fantasmical Anatomy Session creates a visual, sound and sensory landscape, and proposes a fantasmagoric and delirious journey around and inside bodies, where dysfunctional relations and unimaginable actions can take place, troubling the relations between inner and outer space. Each lesson is a performance exposes and treats a different body part with the dynamics of desire, through voice, writings, sensorial embodiment and different corporealities.

Between what is no longer and what is not yet by Juan Dominguez
Domínguez wants to suspend events and create an interval of time in which he can try to integrate his past into his future. He will translate his visions and his desire to encounter the unknown through language. Dominguez is working alone for the first time in 14 years. Back then he choreographed his work with labeled cards for the audience to read. Now, he will speak himself and give rise to a self-portrait that cites, in the broadest sense of the word, himself and some of his friends.

Music For Lectures/ Every word was once an animal
by Jonathan Burrows, Mette Edvardsen, Francesca Fargion, Matteo Fargion
In this lecture with live music Mette Edvardsen will speak about language and repetition as material in her work. What does it mean to do the same? What does it mean to do something again? Every word was once an animal is part of Burrows and Fargion’s Music For Lectures series, which aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues their recent practice of creating in proximity and collaboration with the work of other artists.
