This work invites participants to take a stand on any number of divisive issues. Individuals embody their preferences, beliefs, and aspirations in public space as part of a choreographed demonstration, in which political and philosophical positions manifest into physical positions.
Public Movement is an action and research group that creates political situations, moments of social order, public choreographies, and scenes in public life. Founded in 2006 by group leaders Dana Yahalomi (b. 1982) and Omer Krieger (b. 1975), Public Movement explores the political and aesthetic possibilities residing in a group of people acting together. Public Movement actions include manifestations of presence, fictional acts of hatred, new folk dances, synchronized procedures, spectacles, and marches, as well as invented and reenacted moments in the life of individuals, communities, and social institutions.
Positions is presented as part of Performa 2011. Check back soon for more details on date and location.
