Longing to be parasite specific?
Stretching the medium of radio and choreography by becoming parasites with a do-it-yourself attitude. You’ll never be alone again.
A parasited presentation
Choreographic Radio was initiated in 2015 and arose from our longing for new artistic practices to reflect, debate and respond to changes in contemporary time.
We functioned as parasites, feeding the radio shows by the content of the work field that surrounded us. In our radio shows we chewed on the information, digested it and reflected on it within a strict choreographical frame.
In Never alone again February 4th we, after a short peek in our last show, collaboratively set up a laboratory to transform our impressions into actions. Through playful exploration we reflect on what it means to be a choreographic parasite.
Choreographic Radio is: Annette van Zwoll, Ana Trincão, Adrian Shepard and Sonja Augart. Based in the dance field, we don’t know much about radio. But we want to communicate and to develop a discourse beyond geographic and choreographic borders. That’s how Choreographic Radio was born.
