On Thursday 30 May at around 19:30 hrs, as part of If I Can’t Dance’s project Occupation Evacuation Transmission, artist Matthew Lutz-Kinoy will give a presentation of his work at the Dutch Art Institute in Arnhem. His presentation takes the form of a live directors commentary over the video BACKSANDEDBYLUTZKINOY in which issues of pantomime, biography and generative reacting are addressed.
The following day, Lutz-Kinoy meets with students of Occupation Evacuation Transmission for a workshop that starts from an exercise of reading and giving voice to a series of poems by the poet Essex Hemphill. The students are encouraged to consider presence, duration and verbalization with voice and sounds. Inherent to this performance of enacting a voice will be the participation in the visibility and realization of minoritarian positions.
Over the day together the focus will be on movement and the physicalization of response / reaction, and on occupying a space of influence where movements function as symbols and position us in a space that is riddled with the language of experience, judgment and recognition.
