Residency|Christina Karagianni & Pierre Magendie|KTC

ktc11 -16 December 2016

Presentation:  16 december 20:00u.

KTC stands for KammerTanz Coop. We are an open bunch of artists mainly trained in dance at the Greek State School of Dance (aka KSOT) but willing to experiment and create at the intersection of choreography and performance arts, whether live music, video art, comedy, fashion runway. Originally constituted in 2011 in Athens by Christina Karagianni (GR/ND) and Pierre Magendie (FR), the crew evolved according to the needs of its creators and creations.

For the sake of reunion and dealing with the consequences of a reunion. After having had worked together in the past, the interest to work together again has arisen. We are challenged to create – within a restricted time frame – a contingent and open practiced situation where we discuss one our how-abouts. How to relate to one another, how to share in real-time our working methods and how to update what has happened during KTC hiatus era.

With our reunion we are questioning the working conditions of the artistic field. This is a reunion and not a project based meeting. By working this direction we are questioning the restrictive temporal dimension of a project (which presupposes outset and finalization and working towards an aim) and which is dominant in the processes of making in the contemporary artistic field. (See The Project Horizon: On the Temporality of Making by Bojana Kunst). Our reunion has no strategy and plan. We welcome the possibility of a disaster.
