Manifesto of the Now: Acts of (non) Resistance

Performances at Sommerszene festival in Salzburg

Manifesto of the Now is a series of performative acts by nine artists, standing for persistent attentiveness towards the Here and Now, placing the agency of change on the individual. It is a practice of resistance against fragmented perception, through dance, music and poetry, celebrating the whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Seven short solos and five group acts of various constellations inhabit four days of the Sommerszene festival in diverse spaces such as the studio, connecting hallways, the theatre blackbox. Each performance is an act of resistance, where the performers, dancers and musicians negotiate between the given choreographic structure and the imminent state of the body in relation to space and time. With distinct physical and sensorial themes, the artists in each act examine the Now from a different point of view.
