PERFORMANCE ACADEMY is launched at Interaktionslabor

August 13-23, 2011

During ten days in August, the international Interaktionslabor in Göttelborn 
collaborates with XMLab, Donlon Dance Company and Centre de Création 
Choréographique Luxembourgeois TROIS C-L on creating a new PERFORMANCE ACADEMY, 
a shared platform of workshop spaces and research facilities for 
performance-media design, interactional and wearable concepts, and 
investigations of gestural processes, protocols, and social choreography. 

With its partners XMLab, Donlon Dance Company and Centre de Création 
Choréographique Luxembourgeois TROIS C-L, Interaktionslabor shares the sense 
that the concept of research should be opened up (again), and aims to 
acknowledge the relevance of experimental treatments of actuality – of forms of 
collaborative creation – that may take us beyond the perspectives and protocols 
of (established academic) inquiry as we know it. Which is why we have chosen 
gesture as focus of the inaugural workshop – gesture as practice that is at 
once aesthetic, corporeal, and political. The lab will offer a series of 
parallel modules investigating the relations between choreography and software, 
sound and motion-design, movement capture and 3d digital/virtual environment 
navigation, light and projection architecture, dirty electronics and 
interactive programming. 

The workshop in August will inaugurate a 12-months series of performance and 
research events open to individual, collective, and institutional actors 
especially from the Greater Region (Luxembourg, France, Belgium) but also from 
the EU and beyond, to facilitate the sharing of approaches, experiences, and 
reflections. The events are varied, including workshops, hacklabs, and 
symposia, but will be organized under the common umbrella of the PERFORMANCE 
ACADEMY.  The new academy plans to include exhibitions and 
concert/installations in an open platform for the exchange of new performance 
and media work; locations for these events include venues in Saarbrücken and on 
the coal mine campus in Göttelborn.
