Body Not Fit for Purpose

The work of Burrows and Fargion radiates delight even as it makes the audience think. Over the past twelve years the two artists have built a body of duets which mix the formality of classical music composition with an open and often anarchic approach to performance and audiences, bringing them a worldwide following.
Body Not Fit For Purpose was created for the Venice Dance Biennale 2014. The piece clashes angry politics against the empty joy of dancing, unravelling the link between meaning and action and raising questions in the midst of our laughter.

Music For Lectures/Every word was once an animal

Text by Mette Edvardsen
Music by Jonathan Burrows, Matteo Fargion, Francesca Fargion

In this lecture with live music Mette Edvardsen will speak about language and repetition as material in her work. What does it mean to do the same? What does it mean to do something again? ‘Every word was once an animal’ is part of the series ‘Music For Lectures’ by Burrows and Fargion that aims to collide academic practice with the actuality of performance and continues their recent practice of creating often in proximity and collaboration with somebody else's work.

Mette Edvardsen is structurally supported by Norsk Kulturråd, BUDA Arts Centre Kortrijk, APAP network (EU), is currently a research fellow at Oslo National Academy of the Arts and associated artist at Black Box teater Oslo

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are co-produced by Kaaitheater Brussels, PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen

Tekst av Mette Edvardsen
Musikk av Jonathan Burrows, Matteo Fargion, Francesca Fargion

I denne forlesningen med live musikk vil Mette Edvardsen snakke om språk og repetisjon som materiale i arbeidet hennes. Hva betyr det å gjøre det samme? Hva betyr det å gjøre noe igjen? ‘Every word was once an animal’ er del av serien ‘Music For Lectures’ av Burrows og Fargion, hvor de ønsker å kollidere akademisk praksis med aktualiteten av scenekunst og fortsetter en nyere del av deres kunstnerskap hvor de ofte skaper i nærhet og samarbeid med andres arbeid.
