alt. org will present a set of practices that all attempts to reimagine bodily construction -it’s a dance towards the inorganic. It’s a place where decomposed bodies collides and new bodily organizations occurs. 

The work is concerned with how theoretical and physical knowledge is produced and experienced in an experimental process. Here this is done through superimposing different choreographic tools and materials. 
Through the use of scores and frameworks the performers are occupied in a process of how to circumnavigate and short-circuit always re-occuring movement patterns. These processes will be exhibited live on stage and is a part of the performance. 

”Then you will teach him again to dance wrong side out, and this wrong side out will be his real place.”

Sebastian Lingserius attended the master program in choreography at DOCH headed by Mårten Spångberg. Sebastian’s latest piece “Ofas” (2011) was created in collaboration with Weld in Stockholm. Ulrika Berg studied at DOCH. Ulrika has worked with Deborah Hay, Rasmus Ölme, Anna Koch, Eszter Salamon/Christine de Smedt among others, and has an ongoing collaboration with the internationally based group Lesley. Love Källman has worked with choreographers such as Björn Elisson, Malin Elgán and Vindhäxor. Both Sebastian Lingserius and Love Källman have studied at the Royal Swedish Ballet School. Josefine Larson Olin has a background in the visual arts and studied at Balettakademien. Josefine has worked with among other artists Tove Sahlin, Anna Koch and Rebecca Chentinell as well as Stina Nyberg, Helena Stenkvist and Tova Gerge in the collaborative form Bermudatriangeln. Josefine received the danceWEB scholarship 2009.

Also sprach Zarathustra -alt. org

 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30 (Thus Spoke Zarathustra or Thus Spake Zarathustra)[1] is a tone poem by Richard Strauss, composed in 1896 and inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical treatise of the same name.[2] The composer conducted its first performance on 27 November 1896 in Frankfurt. A typical performance lasts half an hour.

The work has been part of the classical repertoire since its first performance in 1896. The initial fanfare – entitled “Sunrise” in the composer’s program notes[3] – became particularly well known to the general public due to its use in Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The fanfare has also been used in many other productions. Among others alt. org, by choreographer Sebastian Lingserius. in Mdt Nov 2011.

a multi-organized body is more stable

A large variety of life forms coexisting is good for stability. Stability is then not static, but an (immanent) continuum – think of a rain forest. Anything static will not ever continue…

If ‘life form’ can be understood as ‘way of living’ it gives us: a society where there is numerous ways of living your life will be better for the ones in it (of course) AND it will be better for parallel existence, surrounding nations: because it’s stable. The more complex (and by that self-sufficient), the less need for expanding or praying/exploiting it’s surrounding. At the same time it will be more open to influences and have less need for protection, borders and closedness.

The more homogeneous something gets (and by that more effective) the faster it will - not only be able to but - need to expand. And the opposite goes: if we want expansion - growth - we will need homogeneity and conformity.

Mimesis - Methexis - Effexis 

By creating a physical practice where we copy what we assume is the physicality of magnets, we represent a multi-organised body that effects us as performers and thereby propose a that body.

Grupper

Grupp 1. max 3 antal ytor i rörelse

Grupp 2. minsta mängd anpassning utan förberedelse. Linjen anpassar sig till kroppen.

Grupp 3. obegränsad anpassning utan förberedelse. den raka linjen mellan polerna prioriteras. Kroppen anpassar sig till linjen.

Grupp 4. förberedelse (utan att bryta magnet) så att anpassning inte behövs. 

Grupp 5. alla medel tillåtna (utan att bryta magnet) 

Anpassning: sker under tiden (efter påbörjad magnet) inte planerat; endast när det är nödvändigt på grund av magnet

Förberedelse: sker innan påbörjad magnet. Röja undan hinder

"…en höjdens luft. Man måste vara skapad för den, annars är risken stor att man blir förkyld."
 
några citat från: Kropp Konst Kunskap / Spindler
…blir till en kropp, en utsträckthet som söker sig fram genom att använda alla sina sinnen (…) som ytterst alltid sätter sig själva på spel. (sid 65)
.. jaget ligger alltid före oss själva, och skapas i takt med att vi riktar oss mot det.(sid 50)

(Another Note from lecture with André Lepecki)Over human rather than Super manHow bypass the human? Is human only what we call ourselves? How we build a subject.
