Speech Practice


A rehearsal for one dancer
and several writers
This rehearsal aims to address the brief moment, when the event has already taken place, but the course of things still remains suspended. Following and preceding at once Speech Practice: A rehearsal for one dancer and several writers sets in neither to recall, nor to project, but to respond to the appearance of this moment itself and the place of speech it allows for.

Speech Practice: A rehearsal for one dancer and several writers is hosted at ars longa, Paris, and the GfKFB, am Flutgraben, Berlin. It will be displayed in Paris and Berlin. The rehearsal takes place on 25/26 November, between 16-20 hours in Berlin and 18-20 hours in Paris with the participation of Mari Brellochs, Arnaud Elfort, Ayara Hernández Holz and Estelle Nabeyrat.

The material generated during the rehearsals will be subsequently published in the magazine SCRIPTINGS.

Speech Practice is part of the project Ongoing propositions under different conditions by Sönke Hallmann and Achim Lengerer. The series is dedicated to the simultaneous performance of reading, writing and speech within a rehearsal situation.
