PROJECT DESCRIPTION

IF THE BEGINNING IS THE END? (working title) is a dance project.

It is born from the crisis and deals with the concept of resistance as a survival kit.


Time is running.

Money is missing.

Crisis is growing.

Environment is warning.

Art and culture are struggling to sustain.


This project is an applied method of sustaining the crisis without loosing sense of communication, creativity, humour and one's identity. Its idea is that resistance is movement and movement is resistance. And this is performed as a practice of slow revolution. How can different resistance processes be performed? From muscular to intellectual and psychological resistance or from electrical to social, resistance is always a practice of transformation. This work questions these practices as possible forces to sustain and slowly transform. As moving forces to overcome one's limits and thus change. The performers confront their physical and mental limits, powers, weaknesses and patterns. The focus is on these precise moments when the conflicts arise and the dialogue starts. The project's estimated result consists of movement/dance, text and live music. 

Our project  deals with the topic of surviving in this absurd world, that's why we need your support! Any amount small, medium, large, extra large, you name it, is extremely appreciated, needed and rewarded!

 

 

WHEN?

The creation period started in Berlin in December 2012 and will continue from June till September 2013. 

nomass will be Artists-in-Residence in France (Atelier Blanchefosse) and in Athens.

Each Residence will conclude to an open presentation.

 

WHY?  

The costs of this project are covered till the end of June 2013. Crowd funding is needed in order to realise the final phase in Athens and in Berlin. The collected amount will be used for the minimum production costs (travel costs, costumes, scenography).

 

WHO?

This work is conceived by a group of artists, the nomass, who were facing the dilemma: how to continue/survive artistically, culturally and financially without reducing their activity into solo work? How to produce work together without falling back into the trap of individual lonely solo creation. So their dilemma became the theme of the new production. And it works so far, because it is possible to make the impossible... and then the show starts.
