The Body As Archive

MARKETING & FESTIVALAKQUISE: Dokumentarfilm, 47 Min. HD | Dance/Art/Science |  2016/17

The Body as Archive is a documentary film based on research that considers ways in which the dancer’s body can be regarded as archive. A few hypotheses are intended as a frame of its research; is the body of a dancer only a repository of forms of usage? Dancers create, accumulate and carry knowledge – where is it stored and what do they explore through their practice? Is it possible to locate kinetic knowledge and understand its connection between subjective vision and objective realisation? How do cultural and social contexts reflect in the body of a dancer? The Body as Archive explores the role of dancer in the preservation of collective knowledge, it’s transmission and it’s accessibility.

Für „The Body as Archive“ übernimmt Butterfilm das Marketing und die Festivalakquise für den Regisseur Michael Maurissens und die CARRÉ BLANC PRODUCTIONS. Der Film wurde gefördert von TANZFONDS ERBE – Eine Initiative der Kulturstiftung des Bundes sowie der Film- und Medienstiftung NRW. Mehr Informationen auf Facebook und der Website zum Film.
