Michael Turinsky

Choreo-politics for the crip animal

Instead of the discussion “Precarious Gestures – A conversation about disability, ecology and somatic practice” led by Michael Turinsky, this will take place for dispositive reasons.

Part of “NO LIMITS Festival Berlin”

Moderation: Heike Albrecht


German Sign Language /  English phonetic language / 

Taking his departure from his own notion of “crip choreography”, Michael Turinsky will propose in his lecture an ecological perspective on human movement that centers around what could be called a basic dis-equilibrium between the human organism and its environment. He argues that choreo-politics for the human as “crip animal” calls for radical “post-growth” adaptations of practices in a way that takes into account the human need for preservation while still making space for excess and lavishness, as they characterize an essential aspect of human striving.
