Matthew Day

During a three-week residency at Tanzfabrik Matthew Day in a new collaboration with Igor Dobricic will develop a series of studio based choreographic negotiations with different materials/things/ objects/subjects/bodies. The research seeks to unpack how it is possible to work with materials following the specificities of each material relationship to produce distinct choreographic situations. The research problems are pursued as a series of events taking multiple form in direct conversation with the material and virtual contexts of production - collaborations, work-sites, institutions, invitations, discourses, disciplines - that reformulate the 'work of the work' as they emerge. Days current research develops a new line of inquiry into the relationships between bodies, objects and actions that are born of both human and inhuman forces. A speculative framing question may be articulated as: If we were able to remove human consciousness from the centre of the universe, what new intuitions, materialities and potentialities may emerge?
